Successful LEAGUE campaign benefits students; campaign raises over $54,000!


Grants are awarded for programs at Lincoln Land Community College from funds raised from the annual faculty and staff giving campaign known as L.E.A.G.U.E. or Leaders Establishing Annual Gifts Underwriting Education.

Thanks to all faculty and staff who made a donation to the LEAGUE campaign this year. The Foundation is thrilled to announce that a total of $54,470 was raised from 164 people who made a gift or pledge to the campaign! This total represents a nearly 39 percent participation rate among faculty and staff.
Funds from the LEAGUE campaign directly support LLCC students through scholarships, grants and more. Given the ever increasing demands on individual and family budgets, the Foundation is grateful that faculty and staff give so generously in support of the students of LLCC.

Congratulations to Keven Tait, ARH instructor, for winning the second $150 cash prize at the end of the LEAGUE campaign. It’s not too late to contribute. If you still wish to give, stop by the Foundation, level one Menard Hall, or give us a call at 62785. You can direct how your donation will be used to support students and programs at Lincoln Land and receive a gift in return.
