Compiled by Wesley Dugger ’21

With the help from numerous direct message submissions, resources collected from Davidson African Students Associations, and other resources, I have put together this list for those looking to donate to bail funds and resources for education.

*This list is not all encompassing, but I hope to spread helpful resources to those who may be seeking it.*

For any recommendations please send them to wedugger@davidson.edu

A special thank you to Davidson African Students Association and to Claire Gregory for most of the resources and information
