Student Emergency Relief Fund
KCC Students Need Your Help!
Our students continue to face unprecedented financial challenges and need our help to meet life’s necessities. Some need a laptop, Wi-Fi access, and other essential materials and resources to accommodate distance learning. Others find themselves without a job and unable to pay for rent, food, medications and other crucial necessities.
Over one hundred individuals, corporations and foundations answered the call to provide vital financial support to the KCC Covid-19 Student Emergency Relief Fund as of February 1, 2021. This support made a tremendous difference, but the need continues to be urgent.
