About the PCCC Foundation's Student Emergency Assistance Fund
This fund provides direct assistance to currently enrolled students, so they can persist with their studies when faced with an immediate and unexpected financial hardship.
Though this fund is being created in response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, it will continue to address the financial hardship caused by (but not limited to) other pandemics, natural disasters, loss of employment/lost wages, and medical emergencies.
This funding may be used for expenses such as: housing/rent; utilities; childcare; technology access; transportation; and food/meals. This Fund will also support tuition, fees, and/or books.
When you donate online, please include “Emergency Fund” in the Special Instructions.
Thank you for providing PCCC students with the support they need at this critical time!
The Passaic County Community College Foundation was established in 1976 to provide student scholarship support to PCCC students who, without the assistance of scholarship funds, would not be able to attend college. Our philosophy is to open the door to opportunity for these deserving students, many of whom overcome both financial and personal challenges to pursue their dream of a college education. We invite you to visit the links on this page to learn more about who we are and how to be part of our giving community.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the PCCC Foundation is on track to award more than $800,000 in scholarships for the upcoming academic year. We are grateful to our donors and very proud of our worthy scholarship recipients. The Passaic County Community College Foundation is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit.
Thank you to our donors for making our 16th Annual Golf Outing a tremendous success! We couldn’t have done it without your continued support!
