COVID-19 Emergency Fund

A way to help Seattle Colleges students weather the crisis, stay healthy and stay in school

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.

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.

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.
