LCCC Foundation Campus Grants Program

Fiscal Year 2015-2016

GENERAL INFORMATION

The LCCC Foundation Campus Grants Program provides funds for unique projects that enhance teaching and learning or provide program enhancements or special services.  Campus Grants are designed to provide funding for projects or equipment that would not otherwise be funded through the College’s budgeting process.

The LCCC Foundation Board of Directors makes the final decisions as to which projects will be funded.  The Grants Committee of the LCCC Foundation Board carefully reviews each application and makes recommendations for funding to the Board.  The Foundation Board strives to fund a variety of projects that impact as many students/constituents as possible, in support of the College’s Vision 2.0 strategic plan and the four cornerstones of the College’s vision and mission statements:  EDUCATION, ECONOMIC, CULTURAL and COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

Four Cornerstones of LCCC's Mission and Vision 

Economic: 
Growing jobs, building workforce, nurturing entrepreneurship

  • Example:  entrepreneurship education 

Education: 
Creating affordable access, enhancing quality, designing pathways

  • Example:  supporting scholarships, supporting UP, supporting adult education

Cultural: 
Inspiring diversity, enhancing opportunity, showcasing talent

  • Example:  Stocker Center, Arts & Humanities programs, expanding liberal arts programs

Community: 
Bridging gaps, establishing partnerships, promoting collaboration

  • Example:  K-12 Partnerships, new learning technology resource center (library)
