To help ensure access to every student who seeks an education, GCC is raising funds to establish a Textbook Fund for students in need.

The need is great: 79% of GCC students receive some form of financial aid and still struggle to make ends meet. Donate to the Textbook Fund - help change lives now by putting a textbook in a student's hand who cannot afford one

In a nationwide survey, 65% of college students have, at some point, not purchased a textbook because of the price. Some students choose not to purchase the book. Many of our students simply cannot afford them. Instead, they....

* Ask classmates to share their book with them

* Use their cell phone to take pictures of each page

* Ask to read over the shoulder of a classmate

THE IMPACT

This decision inevitably impacts their success in the course because they...

* Fall behind in the reading

* Miss assignments

* Achieve lower grades

HOW WILL THE TEXTBOOK FUND HELP?

The purpose of the GCC Student Textbook Fund is to provide students with the textbooks required for each class. The dollars collected go directly to students who cannot afford to purchase the books for their courses. This fund puts a book in our students' hands; helping them stay on the path to academic success
