Emergency Fund

The Christien Rodriguez Memorial Fund

This fund benefits LGBTQ students who are in crisis. Sadly, and all to commonly, parents/guardians/family find out their child is LGBTQ and reject them, take away financial support, and leave them to fend for themselves. This fund is an emergency fund to help in these types of situations as a stop-gap while students work to set up financial aid to continue their education.

If you need support from the Christien Rodriguez fund, please contact any of the professioal staff:

Davidian Bishop (Director)
davidian.bishop@uci.edu 

Deejay Brown (Assistant Director)
