Educational Support

Lincoln Land Community College Foundation: Your Gift. Their Reward.

student in a classroom

We believe in the power of education. From providing hundreds of scholarships to enhancing the learning and working environment with important programs, classroom resources, furnishings and equipment, the Foundation makes a difference at LLCC.

Through the Foundation, donors can take pride in fostering the growth of a student, facilitating the work of a faculty member, or advancing arts and culture and academic and workforce programs.

Annual faculty and staff campaign underway!

Thanks so much to all who attended and took part in the fun and games at Tuesday’s LEAGUE Luau! What a great day for our students with gifts and pledges of support totaling more than $35,000! Thank you for all you do for our students and for your generous support. There is still time to make your gift by completing the 2018 LEAGUE enrollment form and returning it to the LLCC Foundation.

Remember…everyone making a donation by the end of April will be entered into the second cash drawing of $150.

Join us May 5, 2018 for our 12th annual Gala!

Mark your calendars for the next edition of the always-spectacular LLCC Foundation Gala!  You're invited to step into our "Secret Garden," Saturday May 5, 2018.

Keeping with tradition, the event will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by a gourmet dinner prepared by LLCC Culinary Arts students and instructors at 7.  Entertainment will be provided by LLCC's talented musicians.  Other highlights will include the Will of Wines and Spirits, terrific silent and live auctions and more.

Cost is $125 per person and sponsorships are available.  For more information, call 217-786-2785.

Our 2017 event, held this past May, was enjoyed by more than 250 guests helping us celebrate the college's 50th anniversary!  The elegant 60s inspired event featured our outstanding students once again sharing their culinary and musical talents.

Our thanks to Premier sponsor United Community Bank, and our other generous sponsors and supporters.  Community support helps make the evening glittering, glamourous and a terrific success for our students...thank you!
