Dues and Donations
GSU is supported by optional dues from its members. Those who choose to pay dues are asked to maintain payment monthly as long as they are a graduate worker.
In addition, we welcome donations from members and others who wish to support GSU.
You can also donate to:
- We are also collecting donations for GSU’s hardship fund
- The Mutual Aid Committee’s food justice fund, which will go towards making meals and distributing them across the city

Participate in Mutual Aid programs
GSU has its own Mutual aid committee, which you are more than welcome to join. In addition to that, we encourage you to look into Chicago wide mutual aid programs such as Love Fridge.
Love Fridge is a community based mutual aid group which runs a network of fridges that community members can contribute food to or take food from depending on their needs.
