Give Day 2020 Wrap up

Posted On: 09/03/20

The recent Kankakee Community College Foundation Give Day proved we are #strongtogether!  

On Thursday, Aug. 27, the KCC Foundation held a first-ever Give Day virtual event asking alumni, faculty, staff and the community to support three KCC initiatives, a Technology Fund; an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Center Fund; and an Emergency Assistance Fund.

The Technology Fund helps current KCC students navigate the impact of remote learning. The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Center Fund fosters community-building, and provides resources and a safe, inclusive and affirming space for the entire campus community. The Emergency Assistance Fund supports KCC students experiencing an extreme financial hardship that threatens to halt their education. 

“We want to thank our generous donors who supported Give Day!” said Kelly Myers, executive director of the KCC Foundation. “Together, we raised $39,565. This day of giving provided essential support that will increase the success of our students. Together we really are strong!” 

More information, updates and opportunities to support KCC students, are online at foundation.kcc.edu/.
