An estimated 50% of college students do not have enough to eat. As many as 10% are homeless.

We help college professors and their unions help their students, distributing emergency aid FAST.

Our students are, in the words of a longtime professor, “trying to do something for themselves in a country that does very little to help them. We’ve shredded the social safety net; we’ve defunded our public colleges and public schools. Yet, against all these odds, they are trying to succeed with the only thing left out there that is a life raft—which is education.”

Just like your parents helped you pay that last-minute bill, or your friends spotted you cash when you were short, we help college students who have nowhere else to turn. It’s quick, it’s simple, and it works.


We’ve just chosen the FAST Fund recipients for the 2018-2019 year. Congratulations to the following colleges and universities, and thank you to the American Federation of Teachers for helping us focus some of this year’s awards on faculty in locals seeking to make a difference!
