The LCTCS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with a volunteer board that understands the mission of community and technical colleges. Our foundation board works to develop private resources through partnerships with local business and industry, philanthropic individuals, and other foundations. These resources provide additional student scholarships, program expansion, new facilities, professional development for faculty and staff, innovative teaching and learning, and a margin of excellence that traditional funding sources cannot fully provide. In order to fully meet the needs of our students, faculty, staff and our state in the coming years, developing private resources through our foundation is a key strategy.
