Private contributions are essential to student success. You can make a meaningful impact across many areas of Lincoln Land Community College.
Unrestricted funds support students by providing funds for the college’s greatest needs including the latest technology, start-up funds for new programs, upgraded facilities, classroom equipment and seed capital or funds for new programming. Unrestricted gifts empower us to provide maximum flexibility for the college to meet our current priorities and needs and support students.
DESIGNATED PROGRAM SUPPORT
Direct your charitable gift to benefit a specific program or area of interest. From art to history to agriculture to athletics, the areas of support provide endless opportunities.
Establishing a scholarship with the LLCC Foundation is a wonderful way to assist students in achieving their educational goals. Scholarships help pay for tuition and fees and in some cases required textbooks or tools.
There are two types of scholarships that you may establish: Annual and Endowed
A strong endowment fund is one of the most important things we can do to ensure a strong future for students today and generations to come. With endowment funds, only the earnings are spent annually, while the principal continues to grow, supporting needs well into the future.
Whatever the educational challenge, the tradition of the LLCC Foundation Endowment Fund has been one of stepping forward to answer the need. Your generous participation will forever change our students’ lives - now and in the future.
PAY IT FORWARD EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUND
Pay It Forward Fund supports emergency student needs, allowing our students to stay in courses. Books, rent, course materials, tuition, computers, and technology are just a few examples of assistance that is provided to LLCC students in emergency situations. But “Pay it Forward” isn’t really about the books, the computer, the bus pass or the rent. Those are simply the means of support. It is about the student who needs help getting back on his or her feet when a set-back occurs, to stay on course and complete their educational goals.
“Without a doubt, I am who I am today because of my experience at LLCC, both personally and professionally. The excellent courses, phenomenal professors and staff, extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities, and endless experiences I had at LLCC helped me grow my confidence, learn about myself, have new and diverse experiences, learn my strengths and weaknesses, and propel me into a meaningful career that I love. LLCC was the solid foundation to build my entire career off of.”
