As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, more and more members of our community are facing urgent financial needs. Thanks to the leadership and generosity of our Board of Trustees, we created the CCSC Community Relief Fund to directly respond to these needs.
Overview of Fund
The CCSC Community Relief Fund is intended to support members of our community who are in need of urgent financial support. Money will be dispersed from the fund in the form of one-time debit card payments ranging from $100 to $500. These debit cards can be used to pay for groceries, utilities, needed medical expenses, and other basic necessities.

Effective immediately, families and alumni can apply for financial support from the CCSC Community Relief Fund by completing this form.
