Emergency Student Relief Fund

Providing Relief to Students

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause disruption to ECC students, the ECC Foundation is committed to ensuring that our students can continue their education, regardless of circumstance. For that reason, we have created our Emergency Student Relief Fund to provide consolation for our students. The purpose of this fund is to secure resources for students whose lives have been affected by the ongoing pandemic. Read news release

The ECC Foundation initially seeded over $10,000 in the Emergency Student Relief Fund and asked the community to help us raise a total of $50,000 by the end of April, 2020. We are pleased to share that we have since surpassed our original $50,000 goal. Thank you all for your generous support. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you!  

To date, the ECC Foundation has received hundreds of applications for emergency relief from our students – with over $30,000 distributed from the fund so far. We are reviewing all applications and providing assistance where needed. The Emergency Student Relief Fund will prioritize funding for those students who may not qualify for assistance through federal CARES Act funding. 

While we have reached our goal, our need is expected to well surpass $50,000 in the coming weeks.  We will continue to look for ways to make the resources necessary for success available to all our students. Please continue to show your support and give below by credit card or mail a check to:
