How you can help during this crisis: A message from LLCC Foundation

Thank you to all faculty and staff who have worked so hard to help our students continue their educational journey by means of alternative learning methods on our now virtual campus. Many people have asked if there is anything more they can do to help support our students during this unprecedented difficult time.

Please support our local businesses when you can. Our community partners including our alums need our support now and in the days to come to help get through this crisis so they can keep their doors open or re-open when the day comes. If however you are making purchases on Amazon, please use the AmazonSmile website and designate the LLCC Foundation to receive a portion of eligible purchases for the benefit of our students. Since we partnered with AmazonSmile, the LLCC Foundation has received nearly $2,000 thanks to your purchases. Please go to www.AmazonSmile.com to sign up for free.

Another means of support for our students is the Pay It Forward Fund, for student emergency assistance. Just last month, more than $5,700 was donated by donors, alumni, retirees, faculty and staff for the Pay It Forward Fund during our first ever Day of Giving. In the days ahead, this fund will be ever more important as our students face many obstacles and challenges related to the pandemic. Donations can be made anytime to the Pay It Forward Fund on-line at www.llccfoundation.org/donate.

Last week would have been the kickoff to our annual faculty and staff giving campaign known as LEAGUE. The LEAGUE Committee had great plans to relive the 90s during a luncheon celebration — but plans change. We are grateful to the faculty and staff who have already made their annual contributions to LEAGUE. Thank you! We hope that when we all return to campus we will be able to gather and participate in some fun activities. Until then, you can still make your annual donation to the LEAGUE Campaign by completing the 2020 Enrollment Form and forwarding it to the Foundation at LLCCFoundation@llcc.edu. As always the Foundation’s mission is to provide support for the benefit of our students and programs. Please feel free to contact me at 217-786-2784 or by email at Karen.Sanders@llcc.edu.
