HCC Foundation Creates Student Emergency Assistance Fund

(April 2, 2020) – The Hagerstown Community College Foundation has established a new Student Emergency Assistance Fund that provides a one-time financial stipend for HCC students who find themselves facing homelessness, illness, unemployment, or who might otherwise be unable to continue their education, due to COVID-19 related circumstances.

“Many of HCC’s employees expressed concern about the well-being of our students during this time, knowing that they may be experiencing significant disruption in their day-to-day lives,” said Ashley Whaley, senior director of college advancement at HCC. “I’m so pleased that the Foundation was able to quickly establish a way for employees to help, in such a meaningful way.”

The HCC Alumni Association will match donations, up to $10,000. For more information on the fund and how to donate, visit www.hagerstowncc.edu/emergencyfund. Details about the guidelines and process for students to apply will be available soon.
