Thanks to generous donations from last month’s Giving Tuesday Now campaign, the VCC Foundation has been able to open a second round of COVID-19 emergency bursary funding, with $50,000 now available to VCC students in need of financial assistance due to the pandemic. 

This second round of bursaries is possible thanks to donations by longstanding supporters including Rick Hatswell of The Craftsman Group, motorcycle retailer Deeley Group, as well as both existing and new donors, including VCC alumni, employees, and community members.
