LEAGUE Luau, March 27


Evan Miller








Giving to LEAGUE is about supporting students, like Evan Miller. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me reach my dream and pushing me closer to my goal … for reminding me that hard work doesn’t go unseen … for reminding me that it’s worth it.” – Evan Miller

What is LEAGUE?

LEAGUE is an acronym for Leaders Establishing Annual Gifts Underwriting Education and is the annual opportunity for LLCC faculty and staff to make charitable donations back to the college. Funds raised go directly to support LLCC students through scholarships, grants and other Foundation funds. No LEAGUE dollars are used for operating expenses for the LLCC Foundation.

Nearly half of all LLCC faculty and staff donate to the LLCC Foundation through the LEAGUE campaign. Besides the great work you do every day, LLCC faculty and staff truly support their own.

Join us for the LEAGUE Luau on Professional Development Day, Tuesday, March 27 at 11:30 a.m. in the student union. A luau-style lunch will be provided, and all are welcome to participate in the fun.

Why give?

Most people say a personal connection is the main reason for charitable giving and because they feel it’s the right thing to do. What better investment than our students? You’re truly making their lives better with the gift of education.
