The Student Emergency Fund, which also includes Grizzlies Helping Grizzlies, is a unique program that provides assistance to students in times of emergency and great need. Often, these situations can threaten to derail a student's education. But with your generosity, we can help these students persevere through difficult times. 

Gifts provide basic necessities and address sudden emergencies that keep our students moving forward. By donating, you help Grizzlies who need it most. 

Grizzlies create caring and supportive relationships that are essential to success, learning, persistence and graduation, and support institutional health and community growth. We can strive to attain all of these goals by helping our students.

Please help students in need by giving to the Student Emergency Fund today! A gift of any size truly makes an impact on students' lives.



Thank you!

We are thrilled to announce that 384 donors have donated $100,470 to the GGC Student Emergency Fund as we conclude this campaign tonight.

Thanks to our donors’ generosity, over 150 emergency fund grants have been made or are in progress to students, totaling more than $73,000, with additional awards being made daily. 

There are still many GGC students who are in need and your generosity will help them with necessities and continue their education.

We are so grateful for your generosity!

Together we are Grizzly Strong! Thank you.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
