The Crafton Hills College Foundation received a grant for $12,500 from Inland Southern California United Way to support Emergency Assistance grants for Crafton students impacted by COVID-19.

Inland SoCal United Way was created through a merger of Inland Empire United Way and United Way of the Inland Valleys.

“We at Inland SoCal United Way are delighted to be able to award grants to local non-profits like Crafton Hills College Foundation who are dedicated to supporting the individuals in our community. We understand that our new normal is a challenge, but Crafton Hills College Foundation is rising to that challenge and we are extraordinarily proud to be able to assist in their efforts.” Said Lisa Wright, President of Inland SoCal United Way.

The funds received by the CHC Foundation will directly support students through emergency assistance grants. To be considered for the one-time funding of up to $500, students must submit a completed application and supporting documents, have completed a minimum of 12 units, be currently enrolled, and be in good academic standing.

“At Crafton, we are taking a holistic approach to help students recover from this pandemic with hotspots and Chromebooks available for check out, a food bank and grocery vouchers, and with emergency assistance grants to help with rent and utilities,” said Dr. Kevin Horan, President of Crafton Hills College. “This funding will enhance CHC’s strategic efforts in supporting students during this difficult time,” continued Horan. “With this help, students are more likely to succeed in their educational goals and we are so grateful to Inland SoCal United Way for their assistance.”
