El Camino Student Emergency Fund Established in Response to COVID-19

During this time of uncertainty and academic upheaval, many have asked how to best help our students. The El.Camino Student Emergency Fund was created in March 2020 to help El Camino students during this crisis. The fund will support:
  • Warrior Pantry: food for our drive-thru Warrior Cupboard pantry to safely serve ECC students
  • Purchase of laptops for students directly impacted by the transition to remote learning
  • MiFi hotspots to provide WiFi for students with no home internet access
  • Emergency funds due to lost jobs and reduced wages
  • Rent, transportation and other living expenses
HelpTo donate and grow this fund to help more students, click here and select the El.Camino Student Emergency Fund as the designation (current default option). Thank you for supporting our students with your gift. The world needs more kindness during this difficult time.

Thank You!

These donors have generously given to the El Camino Student Emergency Fund and/or Warrior Pantry. We are grateful for your acts of kindness and your quick response to help those adversely affected by COVID-19. $265,000 in critical support can now assist our most needy students. Again, thank you from the bottom of the Foundation's heart. ❤️

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to navigate through these uncertain and unprecedented times.


The mission of the El Camino College Foundation is to develop community relationships and raise funds to support students' success in education and life.


Established in 1983, the El Camino College Foundation was set up as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to support higher education, arts and athletics. Coincidentally, the state began charging for community college in 1984. As student demographics changed and state funding decreased, the Foundation’s focus shifted to support student scholarships, academic programs and STEM education.
