Gavilan starts Student Emergency Fund for aid in tough times

Courtesy of Gavilan College President Kathleen Rose:

Dear Community Members,

The coronavirus pandemic has changed most of our lives. For many Gavilan College students, already struggling to get by, the lost income and the temporary loss of access to on-campus services (such as the Food Pantry and internet access) has created an even more difficult situation. Even a single bill or unexpected expense could force them to leave college. Our students may be struggling to pay their bills and feed their families.

With a starting gift of $10,000 the Gavilan College Educational Foundation has created a Student Emergency Fund to help them through this difficult time. It will take more than that to provide emergency grants to all of the Gavilan College students who find themselves with emergency needs—for food, rent, medical, or transportation expenses. These emergency grants can make a big difference in times like these.

Please join us in helping our students through this difficult time so they can remain in school and achieve their goals. Use the “Donate Now” button to make a secure, online donation, or mail your check to:
