Sponsorship Level

What Chabot College students are saying about support from The Friends of Chabot College Foundation:

"Thank you for your patience and assistance. Please accept and pass on my sincere appreciation to all members of Friends of Chabot. A quick reference to those like myself that you are helping. I am a 50 year old recently deaf woman, who has come back to school to get a degree. I am close to finishing but my financial aid is almost exhausted. This assistance is a huge help during these unprecedented times."
"I just wanted to thank you for your generous COVID-19 Emergency Aid check. It was really helpful during this time of need to help me be able to stay in school. By your incredibly generous donation, you have helped to make my financial load lighter."
