When expenses pile up, a student’s world can come tumbling down.

A sick child. A car repair. Reduced hours at work. When unexpected expenses hit OC students already struggling to pay utilities, rent, transportation and childcare, something has to go. Too often it’s school.

In Washington State, one in every two college students grapple with basic needs insecurity, including not having enough to eat or a safe place to live.

1 in 3 students strugge with food insecurity; 1 in 10 students have experienced homelessness; in 2022-2023, OC's Student Resource Center responded to 4,300 student contacts from 1,6786 students - 20% of all OC students - 50% who needed help with food; for a low-income student, the annual cost of books and supplies can be the equivalent to one month's rent

Your gift will help ensure that a sudden, small expense doesn't derail an entire college career -- and a student's opportunity for a better life. 

$125 Buys a Digital Access Code for One Class; $150 Buys a Textbook for One Class; $800 Equips one Welding Student; $1,500 Pays for One Quarter of OC Childcare; $4728 Funds One-year Tuition for Olympic College Associate's Degree; Give Today!

Said one student who has received assistance from the OC Resource Center:
“This is vital because the people who go there are really in need. They’re people like me who are 35 years old and coming back to school on a very limited income and public assistance. Getting a textbook through the Resource Center is basically like them giving you $150 because you’re saving that much.”

All donations through Kitsap Great Give will provide emergency support for struggling students. Make your gift today!
