The COVID-19 Student Emergency Assistance Fund at SJC will help those students who have been most affected by COVID-19 and its impact on SJC campuses and programs. Donations will be used to provide critical resources to directly assist students, as well as some SJC offices and other departments, to meet immediate and emergency needs to ensure students academic continuity and success.
Resources will be used to meet various needs including:
Technology and equipment to provide connectivity and support remote learning
Food and housing insecurity
Daily living and transportation costs
Other emergency and unforeseen expenses as needed
The impact of COVID-19 has already significantly changed the daily routines of many SJC students, as well as their opportunities to work and earn funds to support their education. The College is working diligently to identify students with emergency needs and to provide ongoing, flexible support when and where necessary. It is anticipated that the administration of this fund will evolve as students needs change over the coming weeks and months. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible and every gift matters.
