Throughout the years, more than 41,000 individuals have earned associate degrees or college-level credit from Lincoln Land Community College. Many were directly impacted by the generosity of our community friends. Private support is vital to creating flexible, state-of-the-art learning environments, responding quickly to new initiatives, and assisting students through scholarships and emergency, short-term help.
Because the LLCC focus is on helping every student succeed, our current Grow Beyond endowment campaign is critical. These funds meet the greatest needs, whether a student is pursuing an associate degree or certificate to transfer to a four-year institution or training for a new career.
Not only do funds from our endowment campaign support vital needs, they are very much appreciated by the recipients — 80% of students say they would enroll in LLCC again, and 73% say LLCC was their first choice in a college.
LLCC is exceptionally proud of its affordability and lack of student debt. Only 11% of our students need to take out loans. Long term, this is a significant factor for an LLCC degree or certificate generating more than a 24% return on investment.
As we near the 50th anniversary of the college, I ask that you consider linking your name to the college’s future by giving to Grow Beyond. The opportunities your philanthropy will make in the lives of our students are boundless.
