Emergency Aid for California Community College Students

The Foundation for California Community Colleges provides emergency financial aid and other essential support to students when they need it most. When emergency needs arise, whether they result from natural disaster, economic disruption, pandemic, or other yet unimagined challenges, we are there to help. Thousands of community college students statewide have weathered a serious crisis because of emergency financial assistance made possible through the generosity of donors like you. 

You can make a world of difference.

Give Today 

Your donation today will help provide relief to California Community College students facing unexpected hardships and will ensure they can stay in school to persist toward achieving their educational goals. Donations of every size add up and demonstrate to students that we believe in their dreams of building a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities. 

Research indicates that emergency financial assistance prevents students facing a crisis from dropping out. A $500 emergency cash grant can help a student feed their family, repair a car, pay a utility bill, fill a prescription or seek medical care  — all expenses that could force them to quit school to work more hours.

Donate today to lift up community college students with the greatest need.
