Donors

The gift of education is one of the greatest one can make. LLCC Foundation scholarships are made possible by supportive community businesses, organizations, and individuals, as well as through the annual faculty and staff giving campaign. Scholarships are a great way for you to honor a loved one, promote specific career fields, or simply fulfill a passion for helping others. Our scholarship program is flexible and varied to allow you to achieve your philanthropic goals. 

There are two kinds of scholarships that you may establish:

  • Annual – A recommended amount of $1,000 is suggested.
  • Endowed – A minimum gift of $10,000 is invested, which may include one-time cash gifts, stocks and pledges. Only the net income is used, leaving the principal intact.

As a donor, you may name your scholarship, and determine the goals and standards that students must meet.  The LLCC Foundation also hosts an annual Scholarship Reception to give you and your student recipient an opportunity to meet.

Please know that gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated. The LLCC Foundation also has a General Scholarship Fund and emergency fund among others that provide you with other options to help students.
