Emergency Needs Fund

During these difficult times, we know that there are many needs and people are struggling with a variety of things. This is certainly true of community college students. The coronavirus has impacted many students' ability to continue on the path to their academic goals.

We ask that you consider making a donation to the Waubonsee Foundation to help our students get the education they are working so hard for. Today's students are tomorrow's nurses, doctors, scientists, police officers, fire fighters, teachers and all other professions. The people in these positions now are making our world safer and our lives better today. Help us as we help our students as they prepare to serve us in those roles in the future.

The Waubonsee Community College Foundation will match donations made to the Emergency Needs Fund up to a total of $10,000. If you would like to contribute to the Emergency Needs Fund to support students, please use the secure donation form below and select “Emergency Needs/Scholarship Fund” from the designation drop down menu.

Your gift makes a difference

Contributing to the Waubonsee Foundation has a direct and powerful impact on the lives of our students by providing much-needed scholarship assistance. You can make a difference and help support our students! Generous gifts from our devoted donors, alumni and community partners give our students a real shot at success—a chance to truly live their dreams. Your generous donation will help us open doors of opportunity for more students for years to come.

How you can help

Foundation Heart Hand Icon

Without scholarship assistance, many students are not able to begin their journey toward success. There are many ways you can help them realize their dreams.

Donations may be made to current scholarships, or you may wish to fund your own scholarship.

Together we can make higher education more accessible for those who need the most assistance. On behalf of Waubonsee's students, thank you in advance for your consideration and your generosity.
