Lives are changed and dreams are realized when students are able to pursue the training and education they need for a successful future!

Serving our Community

The Foundation's mission is to provide financial support where public funds are not sufficient, and to gather support for the enhancement of educational opportunities at Lower Columbia College.

The Foundation works to advance the mission of providing financial assistance to students, encouraging public support for the college, and strengthening the teaching, learning and cultural environment of the college and our community.

Fully half of the nation's undergraduates are served by community colleges. Here at home, LCC is a beacon for everyone from high school students getting a Running Start to individuals starting a second career.

We are grateful for our strong partnerships with community members and businesses that help us continue to serve a growing student body during challenging economic times.

The Lower Columbia College Foundation was formed in 1976 with the help of Phillip and Jeanne Wertheimer. The mission as a college foundation remains the same today as it did 40 years ago by providing Avenues for Excellence in Education.

The LCC Foundation is committed to providing ways for community members and businesses to show their support for students and the College. This strong relationship is what makes LCC truly our community college.
