The Student Assistance Fund for Emergencies, or SAFE Fund, is a non-cash emergency fund initiative set up to provide one-time emergency assistance to matriculating students with short-term unexpected and/or unavoidable financial emergencies.

Students can apply for one-time funding opportunities up to $500 that supports costs including but not limited to safety needs, sudden or unexpected food insecurity concerns, sudden loss of the student’s primary residence due to trauma, replacement of essential personal belongings (due to fire, theft, or a natural disaster, or assistance with travel costs related to a death or illness in their immediate family.

During 2020, the Spartan Open Pantry distributed almost 35,000 pounds of food. This fund is critical in supporting food insecurity initiatives on our campus. This includes the Spartan 2 Go distribution centers around campus that are conveniently located in spaces where students can quickly grab food and supplies.

Nearly 34% of students experience food insecurity. The usage of the Pantry by First-Generation students, underrepresented groups, and LGBTQIA students have much higher usage rates than our campus demographics reflect.

In addition to distributing almost 35,000 pounds of food in 2020, the Pantry also distributed 430 gallons of milk, 641 pounds of clothing, 3,017 hot meals, and over $19,000 in food gift cards. Now more than ever, it’s important to support our Spartans in need.

This fund, managed by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, nourishes extraordinary and vital programs which serve the development of all UNCG students, regardless of academic major.  Gifts to this fund provide learning of 21st-century skills and lead to personal growth and wellness.  The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Vision Fund gives the Vice Chancellor necessary flexibility to support programs which teach leadership and responsibility, social and cross-cultural skills, and civic engagement and civic literacy.
