Help Suffolk County Community College raise $50,000 by 7/1/20 to get matching funds from the State University of New York (SUNY) system.

Suffolk County Community College is concerned for the welfare of our students and their families during this unprecedented health crisis. Many students do not have access to computers to facilitate distance learning and many more have been furloughed from their jobs or are facing unemployment. And some are experiencing a health crisis as the coronavirus impacts our community.

The Suffolk Community College Foundation has therefore established the COVID-19 Emergency Fund to provide grants to assist students experiencing a critical financial hardship that threatens their continued enrollment as a result of the coronavirus.

These grants are available thanks to the generosity of the college community and our Foundation's generous donors. If you would like to join us in helping to support students through this difficult time, please make a gift today. All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Please stay safe and healthy. We'll get through this together.

I am currently jobless because of this pandemic and I have extreme family issues going onPlease if you can help me out I would really appreciate it . Thank You.

I lost my job as a waitress 2 weeks ago due to the COVID-19 shutdowns. I am waiting for unemployment to come through, but I am only getting $109/week.

Unfortunately with everything going on... my job has closed. I have a mortgage, a car payment, utility bills and a childI cannot afford to pay for a textbook that is over $225. I am sure I am not the only one in this predicament. Please let me know what will happen
