Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund was established in 2017 and is administered by the WCC Foundation to help students meet unanticipated expenses, especially those that jeopardize their ability to stay in school. The Fund is completely supported by gifts, donations, and grants from friends, companies, and foundations who share in our critical mission.

The Foundation is committed to providing students with one-time emergency assistance to help them overcome unexpected financial emergencies and remain in school for the semester or perhaps to the completion of their degrees or certificate. This greatly improves their chances of securing higher-paying employment, gaining confidence, and achieving greater things in their lives.

Washtenaw Community College Education Association (WCCEA)

Washtenaw Community College is proud to announce the creation of the WCCEA Faculty Union Cares Fund to support WCC students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty know first-hand the challenges students face while earning their degree, certificate, or transferring to a four-year institution. The new fund will be managed by the WCC Foundation.
