Give to CCAC to help CCAC students in need.
The CCAC Student Emergency GAP Fund is administered by the CCAC Educational Foundation for the benefit of CCAC students in need. Thanks to the generosity of a CCAC Educational Foundation board member, all gifts received will be matched up to $5,000.
The GAP Fund award of up to $500 provides emergency financial assistance to students encountering unforeseen personal circumstances that may prevent them from continuing their education at CCAC. Such life events might include a fire that destroys personal property, the loss of a job halfway through the semester, a divorce, or the sudden inability to afford childcare required to attend classes.
The provision for this aid is extremely limited and all donations received through Give Big Pittsburgh 2019 will go directly to support these CCAC students in need. Students who apply for this award must submit an application and supporting documentation of financial or personal circumstances and meet eligibility criteria. The foundation will then distribute the funds. An awardee may re-apply in subsequent semesters for a maximum award amount of $1,000.
