1. Divisional Funds for Excellence
Each Education Division at Lansing Community College strives to educate and train more students who are retraining to join the workforce or choosing community college as an affordable alternative to four-year schools.
As budgets across campus continue to be tightened, as State aid is on the decrease, these divisions need support for much needed updated equipment, technology and curriculum training to stay current in their fields. This kind of program maintenance helps students gain the knowledge and skills they need to compete in evolving industries, especially during tough economic times.
Donors may select to support the following Divisional funds. Each divisional fund has its own set of criteria, but in general, donations are used for training, technology, equipment, guest speakers and student emergency needs, such as bus tickets, child care and textbooks.
- LCC Business, Media and Information Technology Division Fund
- Liberal Studies Division
- Human, Health and Public Services Division
- Technical Careers Division
- Student Services

LCC Foundation Program Funds are administered by the Foundation in the manner that best serves the intent of the agreement. The Foundation has the power to modify restrictions or conditions on the distribution of funds if they become unnecessary or inconsistent with the educational needs of the college. Gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible to the amount allowed by law.
