    In March 2020, Symba teamed up with Pay Our Interns to launch the #SaveInternships campaign. The associated Intern Relief Fund raised $35,000 and helped 70 students who were facing dire financial constraints. These included undocumented students, immunocompromised students, and students serving as caretakers. The fund extended for a Fall and Spring cycle, ultimately financially supporting 239 students, the average awards ranging from $431 to $643.
