COVID-19 STUDENT RELIEF FUND
We hope you’re doing well during this unprecedented time. None of us have ever lived through a pandemic as devastating as this one. During these times it is important to help those who are suffering physically and/or financially. The College of DuPage Foundation has started a “COVID-19 Student Relief Fund” to help College of DuPage students who are suffering. They also found a benefactor (the Shebik Family) who is willing to match donations up to $25,000. The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund will help students who find themselves facing unanticipated financial struggles. CDAA members care about students. We dedicated our careers to help students at the College of DuPage. We have the opportunity to help students once again. If you donate to the College of DuPage Foundation's COVID-19 Student Relief Fund before April 30, 2020 AND you let us know the dollar amount you donated via email at or by calling Bob Sobie at 630 469- 6727, the College of DuPage Annuitants Association will match your donation up to $2,500.
