COCC Student Emergency Fund Donations

While COCC is working to continue to offer essential services to our students who already face high rates of housing and food insecurity, COVID-19 has further threatened their well-being. A high number of COCC students have had their jobs and other livelihoods stripped away. While they are resilient and determined, these students often come from low-income families and do not have other resources or safety nets. 
COCC is offering online learning but even finding a laptop or internet access is often a struggle. So, COCC students’ ability to pursue further training and education is severely threatened. In response to the dire situation, the COCC Foundation is seeking donations for the COCC Student Emergency Fund to assist those impacted. By providing relief aid, we will ensure students are better able to stay in school now. All funds donated will help with childcare, rent, food, tuition assistance and other emergent needs. These funds are managed by an experienced committee that quickly, wisely and frugally distributes them to students who will benefit most and be able to stay in school. We appreciate contributions from individuals and organizations to address these acute needs and keep the doors to learning open for all.
