Student Emergency Fund

The Los Rios Student Emergency Fund provides immediate financial assistance to students involved in emergency situations so that they can continue their progress towards a certificate or degree.

Since 2009, the Los Rios Colleges Foundation has awarded $207,488 to 293 students at American River, Cosumnes River, Folsom Lake and Sacramento City colleges, students who were homeless, students who lost family members or whose homes were destroyed by fire, students who couldn't afford to feed their families or who were the victims of violent crimes, and yet they were determined to finish the education they had started at Los Rios.

We need partners like you to ensure that this struggle continues to end in success. The Student Emergency Fund is completely funded through the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a donation to this crucial program.
