COVID-19 Emergency Fund

About This Fund

The COVID-19 crisis could fall heaviest on the people so often pushed to the margins: lower-income people, people of color, immigrant communities — in other words, many of those working to better their lives at the Seattle Colleges. The dreams of these students are at risk unless we act swiftly, decisively and generously as a community. We’re mobilizing to shore up students who have the most acute needs. With this $500,000 fund, we’ll make one-time emergency grants to bridge students through this challenging moment and, we hope, sustain their college hopes.

In the best of times, many students at the Seattle Colleges struggle with food and housing insecurity. The COVID-19 crisis makes things far tougher. In coming months, we anticipate providing grants up to $1,000 for needs including groceries, rent, child care and educational technology.

About The Host Organization

Through the Seattle Colleges Foundation, our institutionally-related foundation serving Seattle Central College, North Seattle College, and South Seattle College, the Office of Advancement coordinates and conducts fundraising efforts districtwide to advance the mission of the Seattle Colleges. We work to connect donors who want to impact student achievement and strengthen the Seattle community. Donors’ interests range from student scholarships and support to program and teaching excellence to capital improvements.
