Crisis Relief Terms and Conditions
We are committed to providing relief and support to individuals and students in need. Our mission is to assist you in times of hardship and offer assistance in various forms, including books, school supplies, rent payments, airline, bus, or train transportation, groceries, and car repairs.
We sincerely care about each of our beneficiaries and strive to respond promptly to your requests. However, it is essential to inform you that, due to our operational limitations, we typically do not exceed $2,000 in our relief responses. Requests exceeding this amount may require a longer processing time, and we may be unable to fulfill them promptly.
Large student account balances that surpass $2,000 are beyond the scope of our current capabilities. Providing assistance beyond this threshold may interfere with financial aid regulations and limit our ability to help other students in need.
Please understand that this decision is necessary to ensure equitable distribution of resources and maintain our commitment to assisting as many individuals as possible within our means.
We encourage you to reach out to us with your specific needs, and we will do our best to assist you within the mentioned guidelines. Your understanding and cooperation are deeply appreciated, and we remain dedicated to supporting you through challenging times.
