When the College of Charleston announced March 19 that students would not be returning to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic, many members of the CofC community reached out to ask how they could help. This health crisis presented a challenge unlike anything the College has faced in modern times. Yet the CofC family came together as one to meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable students.

More than 450 alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends answered the call and generously contributed just over $155,000 to the Student Emergency Fund. This critical fund provides support to students facing hardships in areas such as rent, food, textbooks and school supplies, medicine and medical bills, technology needed for distance learning, and other immediate needs. To date, more than 900 students have received funds to help ease the burden of their financial hardships.
