Emergency Response Fund

For Students

Learn about requesting support from the (COVID-19) Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund

For Others

Because many in the Colorado College community asked how they can help, we have established the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund to meet needs during these uncertain times. Many of our alumni, parents, and friends, as well as members of our Board of Trustees and the president's cabinet, have contributed. The fund also provides the college with resources to respond to unexpected expenses developing during this crisis and for lost revenue.

If you wish to contribute, please visit https://ourcc.coloradocollege.edu/covid19responsefund
