What is Lincoln Land Community College Giving Day?

Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) Giving Day is a one-day fundraising event that took place on Tuesday, February 23. Alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of LLCC were all welcome and encouraged to participate! The purpose of Giving Day is to engage our community to advance the mission of the college while raising critical funding for the needs of our students. Our goal was to raise $10,000 to help students with emergency needs, scholarships and through donations to the annual fund. We surpassed our goal raising more than $12,000.

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. 

What Does the General Scholarship Fund Provide?

The general scholarship fund helps students with a demonstrated financial need by helping to cover the cost of tuition.

How Does the LLCC Foundation Annual Fund Support Students?

The LLCC Foundation annual fund support students by providing money for the college‚Äôs greatest needs including the latest technology, upgraded facilities, classroom equipment and in person as well as online curricula.
