LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewis-Clark State College Foundation’s comprehensive fundraising effort Campaign LCSC - Celebrating the Past, Creating the Future is approaching its goal of $12 million. The campaign, which focuses on student success, has raised $11,180,000 thus far. Co-Chairs for Campaign LCSC are LCSC Foundation Board members Don Poe and Butch Alford.
“We are pleased at the response for the campaign, which has illustrated the wide recognition of LCSC as an essential component of higher education in Idaho and the Northwest,” said Poe and Alford. "In pre-planning, we started with thinking a goal of $6 million would be a responsible figure and in several steps we increased it to $12 million. We're confident the goal will be met.”
Poe and Alford added that the funds raised make an incredible difference for students at LCSC by providing them with scholarships and enrichment opportunities. In addition to scholarships that support students, the campaign recognizes the critical role that faculty play in educating students. Funds also support programs and the campus environment, including the Center for Arts and History, Distance Learning, and recently, the renovation of a new home for the LCSC Business Division – Thomas Jefferson Hall.
There are many different ways to give to Campaign LCSC: online, by sending a check, donating stocks, or even donating agricultural commodities.
