Subject: It’s Giving Tuesday! Make a Gift to Portland Community College’s Urgent Need Fund.

Dear _______,


Today is Giving Tuesday and I am supporting the Portland Community College (PCC) Foundation Urgent Need Fund! With your help, our goal is to raise $25,000! The Urgent Need Fund supports PCC programs that help students meet their basic needs so that they can focus on succeeding at college. 

The first $10,000 raised this Giving Tuesday will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Make your gift now to double your impact!

Please join us in support of our amazing students by making a meaningful gift today. Your gift will help support PCC students with future needs such as:

  • $1,000 – Provides three students with access to public transportation for one year.
  • $500 – Provides one emergency grant to ensure challenging life events do not impede their education.
  • $250 – Provides one student with access to nutritious meals at PCC cafeterias for one year.
  • $100 – Provides a PCC student with an internet hotspot for one year.

Any amount is helpful and appreciated! Together, we can make a difference, helping students continue their education at PCC.
