WMU-Cooley Exceeds Original Goal for Student Relief Fund

In April, WMU-Cooley established a Student Relief Fund in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the establishment of the fund, donations from alumni and friends of WMU-Cooley raised more than $45,000, surpassing the original fundraising goal of $35,000.

Funds raised are being used to provide financial support to WMU-Cooley students who are facing an array of challenges during the crisis. The law school receives requests for support daily and has had over 200 requests for assistance. Those needing assistance have lost jobs, are experiencing  dramatic cuts in pay, have medical expenses, are faced with housing issues, or have educational expenses that are outpacing their capacity to fund.

“I am humbled that many of our alumni and friends have stepped up to help our students,” said James McGrath, WMU-Cooley’s president and dean.  “It is gratifying to see such generous support from the Cooley family in these difficult times.”

Gifts of any size can be made to the WMU-Cooley Student Relief Fund at https://www.cooley.edu/alumni/make-a-donation.
