Essex County College (ECC) has been a beacon of hope for many thousands of our residents for over 50 years. Unfortunately, so many of our deserving students face challenges that hinder their hopes and dreams of completing their education.

I’m asking you, as a friend and supporter of Essex County College, to assist us in helping our students through the global generosity initiative GivingTuesday. December 7 has been designated ECC’s GivingTuesday. On that day, people around the world are coming together to tap into the power of human connection and change our world. Will you join us?

GivingTuesday donations will be earmarked for ECC students in need of balance forgiveness in order to cover their unpaid tuition and fees. The goal of balance forgiveness is for students to remain in college. It’s a win-win for both our deserving students and the College with increased retention and graduation rates.
