The C&C Community Bridge Fund: Help and receive support from our community.
C&C has created the Community Bridge Fund to support current families, faculty, and staff impacted by COVID-19. The majority of this fund will be used to support unexpected financial aid needed in the remaining months of this year and next year in order to keep our community whole. Limited funds will also be available to address critical financial hardship. Current parents, faculty, or staff members in need of assistance can reach out in confidence to Director of Community Life, Equity, and Inclusion Millie Cartagena (milliec@cityandcountry.orgor Director of Finance and Operations Mindy Schefen (mindys@cityandcountry.org). Families at all Group levels, from the IIs-XIIIs, whether or not already receiving Financial Aid, may apply for Community Bridge Fund tuition grants using the editable PDF application here.

Health and Wellness
The most reliable sources for COVID-19 information remain the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO), NYSDOH, and New York City Department of Health. Their websites are updated very frequently as experts learn more about the COVID-19 and its progression, and these agencies offer many additional resources for preparing your family or business for unplanned incidents and emergencies.
