Fort Morgan, CO. 4/30/2020 The MCC Foundation recently launched an emergency aid fund campaign, “Unleash the Generosity” to provide financial support to students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The emergency aid fund will provide students with support for daily living costs, such as food, housing and other related expenses. These funds will be made available as MCC staff or faculty identify unexpected financial barriers that may prevent students from successfully completing their course work, and can be used for one-time incidentals.
“When students are struggling and fearful of not successfully completing the semester, we want them to reach out to us,” stated Scott Scholes, MCC’s Vice President of Student Services.
“We are experiencing a time of uncertainty. MCC is doing its best to support students in their educational success through remote learning and virtual appointments. We realize students may have other areas of need that could potentially become a barrier to their success,” said Kari Linker, the MCC Foundation Director of Development. “The “Unleash the Generosity” campaign will allow us to provide financial support to students so that they can continue to focus on their studies and not be burdened by the stress of financial hardship.”
The “Unleash Your Generosity” campaign goal is $10,000. Over 70% of the funds have been raised to date. This Emergency Aid Fund, while developed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue to provide support to students in future years.
