    Student Emergency Relief Fund

    We Asked. You Helped.

    Victory! The Student Emergency Relief Fund has raised more than $20,000 thanks to donations from faculty, staff, alumni and the community. The fund will help Lewis and Clark Community College students overcome financial challenges posed by COVID-19.

    Many students are losing wages due to reduction in hours or layoffs. Others need to be home with children who are out of school and can’t work. They are struggling to make ends meet while trying to continue their courses at Lewis and Clark through online learning. The social supports we have provided to them are needed more than ever, especially our Student Emergency Relief Fund.

    Right now you are helping students put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads. In the near future, your gift will be needed to offset the cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies so that students can continue their education.

    If you have any questions about the Student Emergency Relief Fund, please do not hesitate to contact Debby Edelman in the Foundation office at Thank you, again, for your thoughtful gift.
