COVID-19 response fund for students

Thank you

We are all facing uncertainties right now, but for many PCC students, that might mean shelter for the night or their next meal. We created the COVID-19 Response Fund for Students to support emergency relief for those who need it most, so our students can stay in school and work toward their dreams of brighter tomorrows.

Together, we raised nearly $250,000 and showed our students that the PCC community cares about their urgent needs, as well as their educational journeys.

You helped put food on the table through grocery gift cards while our campus pantries are closed. You provided computers and internet access to help students stay in class. You gave immediate cash support for students through emergency grants, most of whom have experienced job loss due to COVID-19.

If you’d like to still make a gift, please visit pcc.edu/give and under designation, select “Urgent Student Need”, or mail a check and note for COVID19 Response Fund for Students.
