What We Do

Our Donors Change Lives and Enrich our Community. The LCC Foundation matches donors’ gift intent with the needs of our students and our College.

LCC Foundation Scholarships

Through the generosity of individuals, businesses, and organizations, the LCC Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships each year. LCC Foundation scholarships are targeted to students with financial need and can be based on academic excellence, program enrollment, ethnic, gender or family background, or even community service.

LCC Foundation scholarships pay tuition and fees, and in some cases help students purchase textbooks or tools required for their courses. When you establish an LCC Foundation scholarship, you can be confident you are investing in the community’s future, as 70 percent of LCC students stay right here in the region to live, work and contribute to the local economy.
