NCCC Student Emergency Relief Fund

Joining other SUNY campuses across New York State, Niagara County Community College has established a Student Emergency Relief Fund in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. This fund is designated to support the highest, short-term financial needs to students currently enrolled at NCCC who are now facing extenuating circumstances related to housing, food, and other vital resources.

Your gift will assist students and provide immediate relief for expenses related to their basic necessities such as food, medicine, toiletries, and more.

Now more than ever, our students are counting on us. You can make an immediate impact today by donating to the Student Emergency Relief Fund. Every dollar does make a difference. Thank you in advance for your generosity and continued support of NCCC as we work together to ensure the safety and well-being of our Thunderwolves!

If you have any questions, please email Deb Brewer at


Student Application

The NCCC Student Emergency Relief Fund has been established through the NCCC Foundation/Alumni Office to assist students financially who are in need due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). It is funded through the generous donations of NCCC’s Trustees, Board members, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and friends. If you are a current student at NCCC (attend NCCC in spring 2020) who is in need of financial support related to basic necessities (food, medicine, toiletries, etc.), please complete the application below.

Funding will be paid in the format of either a Visa or Wegmans gift card depending upon geographic location. Students in WNY and west of Rochester will be provided a Wegmans gift card and students in all other areas a Visa gift card. If you live in a location where a Wegmans is not accessible to you, a Visa gift card will be awarded. Applications will be approved in the order in which they are submitted. The number of students who will benefit from the Emergency Relief Fund will be limited to the amount of funds donated.
