Faculty and staff donate more than $53,000 in support of students through LEAGUE campaign

LEAGUE logoMore than $53,000 was raised in support of LLCC students and programs through the annual faculty and staff giving campaign known as LEAGUE. Every dollar contributed truly does make a difference. Recently a distraught student came into the Foundation seeking assistance. Thanks to your donations to the Pay It Forward Fund, the student was able to remain in the classroom and finish her summer coursework. Without this emergency fund, the outcome would have been completely different.

Thanks to the more than 41 percent of faculty and staff who donated to the LEAGUE Campaign. It’s never too late to make a contribution. If you would like to donate, please contact the Foundation at 6.2785.
