Front-Line Heroes Fund

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to John Jay College of Criminal Justice by clicking here!

We estimate that 1 in 3 John Jay students are essential workers during the fight against COVID-19.

We celebrate their bravery and service as NYPD, FDNY, EMTs, healthcare professionals, essential workers and others keeping us safe.

The Front-Line Heroes Fund provides these students with no-cost summer sessions and financial support for hardships so they can stay on track and graduate. 

For as little as $300, you can help fill the gap over what financial aid pays and provide no-cost summer sessions to student heroes.

Thanks to the generosity of the Aronson Family Foundation, every $1 donated will be matched by $1 up to the first $25,000—doubling the impact of your gift.

Support our John Jay Front-Line Heroes Today. 

If you're a front-line or essential worker, please connect with us and share your story.
