Taking Care of Our Campus Community

As the impact of the coronavirus continues to grow across the United States the financial implications also continue to grow. People are losing work as businesses and K-12 schools close and many say they are struggling to make ends meet. 

The Hocking College Foundation has set up an emergency fund to assist students who are financially displaced by the COVID-19 virus. If you are able, we hope you'll consider donating.

If you or someone you know needs financial assistance during this time, please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page and someone from the Foundation's office will reach out.
