Because of you, the LCC Foundation is able to fulfill our mission to the college and students!

We hope you and your families are doing well and staying healthy. We are concerned and moved by the stories of students being affected by this pandemic and would like to share one with you. LCC students are being challenged with basic needs, like child care, food insecurity, housing, utilities, transportation, and access.

One student shares, “I am a single parent with low income. I was unable to afford to pay the remainder of my tuition because I had to pay monthly living expenses. I didn’t receive enough financial aid to cover full tuition, so I was at risk of being dropped from a class. This funding truly helped me continue my educational journey here at Lower Columbia College. I appreciate your generosity in supporting the Student Success Fund.” - LCC Student

The College Success Fund supported the purchase of a CNC Plasma cutting machine for welding students. This state of the art equipment integrates the use of computers for pattern cutting technology giving students an introduction to equipment they will be exposed to, on the job, meeting the needs of the modern workforce.

“Foundation grants provide the college an opportunity to promote interest in the Sciences to students from Washington and Oregon that may not normally think of a career or education in a wide variety of STEM topics. LCC’s Science Olympiad event has annually exposed over 5,000 middle school and high school students to the sciences and the LCC campus over the last 10 years. The funding provided helps support volunteers, provides equipment and supplies for the event.”

The College Success fund provided an opportunity to purchase furnishings for LCC’s Veteran Resource Center. All of the veterans and dependents agree that the veterans’ center has become much more comfortable and inviting. Fall quarter we have seen and huge increase in the number of veteran and dependent students who are spending time in the center as a result. This has led to our veterans and dependents making stronger connections with LCC staff and other veteran and dependent students.
