The “Community” in our name

“Community” is in the middle of our name: Lincoln Land Community College. Because we care about and serve our community, we hope you will consider a gift to the community giving campaign through United Way. The campaign continues through tomorrow, Nov. 8.  A small deduction from your paycheck can make a big difference in someone’s life.

Our community campaign is unique. If you have a special cause you support, or if you live outside Sangamon County and want to give to a local organization, you can designate your gift to one or more 501c3 charities. Or, you can give an undesignated donation to serve the greatest needs of the Sangamon County community.

Please contact your employee representative for more information or send your form to them today! Tiffany Andrews (6.2752) HR (M-1223), Nicole Ralph (6.2342) HR (M-1225), Soodi Nassirpour (6.2415) ITS (M-1205), Tara Walk (6.4935) (S-1109).
