Vision Statement

Enhance our community’s quality of life by investing in key Lorain County Community College priorities that present the greatest impact and growth of opportunities for the people of our community.

Role of the Foundation

The Lorain County Community College Foundation (LCCCF), a direct support organization for LCCC, was established in 1973. Among the first community college foundations nationwide, the LCCCF assembles resources from the philanthropic community to accelerate LCCC’s mission and vision. The support provided by the LCCCF enables LCCC to pursue the innovative opportunities that meet the specific needs of our region. In essence, the LCCCF creates a “margin of excellence” for LCCC that is not possible through traditional revenue sources alone, sources such as tuition, state and local funding for higher education.

Foundation Strategic Priorities

The LCCC Foundation has established initiatives around six strategic priorities to establish the Foundation’s top strategies for accelerating the mission of the College. They are:

  1. Ensure support of LCCC Ballot Initiatives
  2. Broaden Leadership Support Base
  3. Launch Strategic Fundraising Campaigns
  4. Enhance Innovation Fund for Stability
  5. Support Alternative Revenue Sources
  6. Develop LCCC Foundation Capacity.
