Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend Marissa Mowry started a GoFundMe this week to raise money for those affected by coronavirus. In the short time the page was up, it raised over $2,500.
On Tuesday, the pair had to shut the page down, as Clemson’s compliance department wanted to make sure no NCAA bylaws were violated. However, late last night, Grace Raynor of The Athletic reported that the NCAA declared the charitable effort to be within the rules.
Lawrence and Mowry will be able to help families in need after all, which is tremendous news. The couple issued an update on Instagram last night, saying they will reveal a new fundraising plan in the coming days.
On his Instagram story, Lawrence said the goal is for the new format to be as “efficient and to help as many people as possible.”
“”Shout out to the NCAA. Thank y’all so much for granting a waiver,” Lawrence said with Mowry by his side. “They’re allowing us to raise money now, to continue to raise money for what we were doing originally. We’re going to take some time and think about how we’re gonna restart it back up.”

Lawrence has been a star on the field in his two seasons at Clemson, but what he and his girlfriend are doing now is going to have an even bigger impact.
Major kudos to them.
