Inspirational words of an LLCC student

BrandonWe hope you were able to hear the inspirational words of LLCC student, Brandon Von Liski, at Professional Development Day.  Brandon is one of thousands who are served by United Way agencies. When being asked to make a charitable contribution, it is very beneficial to see how our contributions can make a difference.  And, clearly, SPARC has made a huge difference in Brandon’s life.  Please consider making a contribution this year to LLCC’s community giving campaign through United Way.  Last year, we collected $17,800.  That is a great number, but we know we can do better.  Whether it’s a one-time contribution made by check or credit card or an amount to be deducted from your paycheck, all contributions will make a difference.  We’ve completed our forms … will you? Forms were placed in your campus mailbox. If you need a form, please contact one of us or send your completed forms to us by Friday, Nov. 8.  Thank you! Tiffany Andrews, classified; Soodi Nassirpour, professional; Nicole Ralph, administrative; Tara Walk, faculty; Lynn Whalen, coordinator.

Remember, through the LLCC campaign, you may designate your gift to ANY 501(c)3 charitable organization inside or outside Sangamon County, not just United Way agencies. Simply write your preferred charity name on the form. If you are unsure if the charity is a 501c3 charity, a complete list of charities qualified by the Illinois State Comproller is available at and a complete list of 501c3 organizations is available at

If you do not designate your gift, it will go to “programs that meet health and human service needs in our community.” (Sangamon County.) Click HERE for that list.
