Quinsigamond Community College has raised $109,070 for its Student Emergency Fund and repurposed $53,000 in grant awards to assist over 700 students in need. The school set up a Student Emergency Fund for students in significant need and hardship due to the pandemic.
In March, the QCC Foundation allocated $25,000 that created the Student Emergency Fund and began an aggressive fundraising campaign with donations coming from QCC’s faculty, staff, directors and trustees, alumni, foundations, banks, corporations, private donors and grants.
To date, the Fund has assisted 526 QCC students to help with rent, food, medical services, childcare, other basic life and educational necessities. Students typically received anywhere from $100 to $250. Additionally, several repurposed grant awards provided 200 students with laptop computers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Student Emergency Fund solidifies the Foundation’s mission of eliminating barriers that prevent student success,” QCC Foundation President Dr. Linda Maykel said. “The many generous individuals, corporations and local foundations that recognized the needs of our student body and stepped up to assist has been overwhelming and heartwarming. However, the need is great and there is much more that must be done to help our most vulnerable students from the hardships incurred by the virus.”
