Ways to Give
With your support, we can continue to give our students the chance to follow their dreams of an education. More than ever, scholarships and financial assistance are a deciding factor for students wishing to pursue a higher education, and your support is critical in giving them the chance to follow their dreams of an education.
Thank you for your continuing support of LCCC and the work of the Foundation to help students reach their goals.
On Nov. 27, Lehigh Carbon Community College will celebrate #GIVINGTUESDAY, a global day of giving that encourages philanthropy and celebrates the generosity of individuals, communities and organizations. Following Thanksgiving and the shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GIVINGTUESDAY will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
As part of #GIVINGTUESDAY
, LCCC has created a special fund to help students pay for their textbooks. National studies reveal that college students sacrifice basic needs to afford course materials like textbooks. On average, students are spending $500 to $1,000 per year on books.
LCCC hopes to bring awareness of the affordability of books for our students. The new fund is intended to help low-income students who cannot afford their textbooks the opportunity to succeed in class, continue with their education and complete their degrees.
This is our first #GIVINGTUESDAY campaign and we are thankful for the support we receive from our community, staff and faculty. Click here to donate
