COVID-19 Support

Erich Behrendt lgPlease picture with me "Tina," a Dutchess Community College student working on a degree in business. She could be a neighbor, a close relative, or even your own child and maybe the first in her family to attend college. Tina is ambitious and works hard. To afford her education and living expenses, she waits tables at a local restaurant.

Then, the COVID-19 outbreak descends on her. Tina's restaurant must close. There's no paid time off or guarantee of future employment. Additionally, she will now incur added costs to learn remotely and continue her studies from the safety of her apartment. How will she afford to continue her education, pay her bills and achieve her goal of a better future?

Tina could be any of our students - or she could have it even tougher, with a family to support. Our studens, some of the most financially vulnerable in our region, face new challenges beyond their control, these events could crush their dreams and rerail their futures. The next few months could chane the lives of many DCC students in a way in whih they may not be ale to recover.

We CAN made a difference - if you will unite with us today. Will you please give a gift at a level that matches the severity of this crisis? You will be providing a lifeline to this generation of students.

THANK YOU for your past support and commitment to our stuents. During these challenging times so many have shown a great outpouring of goodwill and solidarity. Please join this wave of selflessness by giving a generous gift that will help our students persevere today and tomorrow.

With gratitude and wishes for your wellness,
