  • FARM LAND/GIFTS OF GRAIN : We recognize and understand how important locally owned, tillable farmland is to the long-term financial stability of our rural communities in central Illinois. The founders of Lincoln Land Community College were farmers and visionaries. For more than 50 years, LLCC’s Agriculture Program has been a center of excellence. We have five educational land labs totaling 328 acres and know how to manage land, work with local farmers, landlords, managers, and suppliers. We also recognize the value of farmland as a means for charitable giving. We offer a way to keep your assets in production and under local ownership. Read the guidelines for gifts of farmland.  Gifts of Grain - are another option for farmers to make a donation for the benefit of students at Lincoln Land Community College. Find out more about how gifting grain works in the gifts of grain reference guide. Complete the gifts of grain fillable donation form or print and mail to us at Lincoln Land Community College Foundation, 5250 Shepherd Rd., Springfield, IL 62703.
