What is Lincoln Land Community College Giving Day?
Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) Giving Day was a one-day fundraising event held on Tuesday, February 25, 2020. Alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of LLCC were welcome to participate! The purpose was to engage our community to advance the mission of the college while raising critical funding for the emergency needs of our students. Our goal was to raise $5,000 to help replenish the LLCC Foundation’s emergency assistance fund called the Pay It Forward Fund and more than $5,500 was raised.

What is the Pay It Forward Fund?
The Pay it Forward Fund was established by former Foundation Board member, Carolyn Blackwell, who realized there was a need to help students experiencing emergency situations so that they could remain in the classroom. The fund has been used to pay for tuition, purchase gas cards, bus passes, books, tools for students in workforce programs, course materials for students and more.  

How can I participate?
Even though Giving Day has passed you can still donate in support of students who may find themselves in need of assistance due to a catastrophic event or emergency situation.
