Elevate Rebel Relief Efforts

One day the threat of COVID-19 was half a world away, and the next seemingly on our doorsteps.

University of Mississippi leaders moved swiftly to protect students, faculty and staff – ultimately leading to the transition from campus classes and labs to online and remote learning. While COVID-19 has drastically changed the way we live and learn, it has not deterred us from maintaining top-tier educational opportunities.

On March 23, thousands of students logged on for remote instruction designed by deeply dedicated and resourceful professors in less than a week. While the transition to virtual classes was almost seamless, students still had to grapple with food and housing insecurity, medical costs and the expense of traveling home.

Provost Noel Wilkin addressed the need for support during these unprecedented times: "Our goal is to protect the safety of the people in our community and help support our students to complete their semester. This has been a tremendous effort and shift in a short period. As a result, it has required additional resources and support for members of our community.”

As they are known to do, Ole Miss alumni and friends started asking how to help. The Rebel Relief Disaster Fund was created so caring and compassionate supporters could help the university meet the most emergent needs, which change daily as the crisis evolves.

It may be some time before we see one another in person, but every day of this new journey reflects how Ole Miss prevails – and even thrives – under the challenges of a crisis. We will emerge stronger and more vibrant than ever, particularly with your support.

Today, you can help ensure that every member of our community can access the tools and support they need to thrive.  


Choose a giving level


Support our Campus Community

In the wake of COVID-19, many of our students were met with great financial stress. Your gift to the Rebel Relief Disaster Fund allows us to assist in meeting those unforeseeable burdens and promotes the health and safety of our campus.


Meet Evolving Needs

Our students have shown incredible resiliency, grit and determination as they adapt to our “new normal” and commit themselves to their academic pursuits. We applaud their hard work and ask that you support them by contributing to this relief fund.


Invest in Students Now

Thus far, our Student Affairs team has responded to requests and provided the needed funds within an average of 24 to 48 hours, but resources are running low. When we hear of students in need, the policy is to “drop and do!” Gifts of all sizes combine to provide the most help possible to our students.


Help your Fellow Rebels

The average request for relief is around $500. Students have needed assistance with housing insecurity, medical costs and the cost of traveling home. Gifts of all sizes add up to make a difference in the lives of your fellow Rebels.


Change a Life

Every one of us is called at some point to serve our Ole Miss family. During this time of uncertainty, we ask that you consider stepping up to be the difference maker for students in need. The impact of your gift today could mean a lifetime’s difference for your fellow Rebel.
