At times, SUNY Brockport students face overwhelming challenges due to unexpected circumstances. The Golden Eagle Opportunity Fund was established to provide financial assistance for current emergency situations, with the intention to support students to continue their education. Emergency situations are beyond the control of students and they can include instances such as death in the family, accident, loss of property, or loss of income. The funds are reserved for students that have exhausted all other sources of funding.

The GEOF was established in 2019 as a response to growing needs experienced by students at SUNY Brockport. Throughout its existence, the GEOF benefited from short-term philanthropic support from the Heckscher Foundation for Children and the CARES Act. SUNY Brockport continues to raise funds and be supported by community partners through private donations, primarily alumni and friends, to sustain this fund into the future.
