The LCCC Foundation assembles and utilizes resources to support LCCC's mission and vision by: 1) building and maintaining relationships in the community with donors including foundations, businesses and corporations; 2) hosting several annual fundraising events; 3) identifying and applying for grants from private and corporate foundations; and 4) prudently managing funds entrusted to its care within its endowment.

To assist more students access college and achieve their dreams, the LCCC Foundation also manages a robust and comprehensive college scholarship program that grants LCCC and University Partnership students a combined annual total of over $800,000 annually.

The LCCC Foundation was established in 1973. This was just ten years after LCCC, the first community college in Ohio with a permanent campus, was chartered. The LCCC Foundation has a strong history of fundraising in support of LCCC's mission and vision and LCCC has a national reputation for its novel programming and strategies focused on student success. The Foundation and LCCC together have built a culture of philanthropy which has led to long-term success.

The LCCC Foundation has a dedicated staff focused on fundraising, stewardship and management of assets which works in lock-step with LCCC leadership to ensure that activities are strategic and have the greatest impact both for students and the community.

In 2018, LCCC was named the #1 community college in the nation for excellence in student success by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The AACC is comprised of over 900 community colleges nation-wide and this prestigious award was bestowed upon LCCC in recognition of its strategies and culture of caring and equity all supporting students and their success in college.

LCCC continues to build upon this success with its new strategic plan, "10,000 Degrees of Impact." Success for this initiative will be 10,000 new degrees and credentials granted by LCCC by the year 2025. This will have five areas of focus: 1) Student Focused – Expand Participation; 2) Success Focused – Increase Completion and Academic Success; 3) Future Focused – Foster Future Success; 4) Work Focused – Improve Economic Competitiveness; and 5) Community Focused – Enhance Quality of Life.

Student statistics reveal that over 70% of LCCC students rely on some form of financial assistance. Therefore, success for the LCCC Foundation will be that additional sources of funds are secured to help LCCC students achieve their academic and career goals; support innovative programming boosting student success and strong linkage to employers; and enhance the educational experience and our community's quality of life.
