    Our students, our communities need your help.

    Living in the neighborhoods hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, LaGuardia Community College students have confronted the loss of loved ones, jobs and income.

    Our students want to stay in school to gain the skills and earn the degrees that will get them well-paying jobs, and help them build better lives for themselves and their families. They are the future workforce of New York City. But to succeed they need your help.

    A generous donor has pledged to contribute $5 million. Our largest gift ever. To unlock these funds we need to raise another $10 million.

  • Our students need your support in many different ways, including:


    Enable students to earn a degree or certification during these difficult times.

    Emergency Aid

    Help students pay for rent, food, and health care.


    Supply students with laptops, hotspots, and internet access for online classes.


    Provide stipends for internships and work-based learning.

    “My Foundation scholarship allowed me to pay my tuition and buy books and groceries. It not only helped financially but gave me some relief so that I could focus better on my studies instead of being worried about how I will pay for the semester and other bills.”
