YC’s Student Emergency Fund has helped dozens of students help pay car repairs, childcare, rent and other bills since its inception.

The YCF will direct all donations received from generous community members via Arizona Gives Day to the student emergency fund. Early giving for Arizona Gives Day is now underway. Donors can find the Yavapai College Foundation easily on the Arizona Gives Day website, www.AZGIVES.ORG/
