Supporting LMC and Our Students

The Lake Michigan College Foundation recognizes that philanthropic interests and ways of giving differ significantly. Here are a few of the way in which you can support Lake Michigan College and our students:

Scholarship gifts make an immediate impact in the life of a student and open doors to a world of opportunity for student of all ages and backgrounds. Create your own scholarship or make a gift to an already existing fund.

Programs and Learning
Program-specific gifts can be used to enhance technology, drive instructional excellence and create an innovative learning environment. Gifts can be directed to any of our current academic programs or to any of our campuses.

Intercollegiate Athletics
Our student athletes work hard in school and in the game. Show your support for Red Hawk Athletics.

The Mendel Center
The foremost venue for events and performance entertainment in our region. Join our Premiere Partners program and work with us to continue the high quality event and entertainment offerings The Mendel Center is known for.

Unrestricted Gifts
Designate your gift to be used by the Foundation wherever the need is greatest. Every dollar makes a difference.

To make a donation, or for more information, call Foundation and Alumni Services at (269) 927-6849.

From the President

Lake Michigan College is a key contributor to the vitality of the region we all call home. Its innovative approach to education, its responsiveness to providing a trained workforce, its location as a center for cultural and community events - all make LMC an invaluable resource as together we face the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

The Lake Michigan College Foundation and its Board of Directors are dedicated and visionary leaders from across the region the College serves. They recognize the need for private support of the College to maintain premier programs and services in the pursuit of excellence. Representing business, industry, and manufacturing; banking, insurance, and finance; education, health care and the law, the members bring their collective expertise to the support the advancement of the College and they do it well.

We hope you will explore our Foundation website and discover the many ways the Foundation is helping Lake Michigan College create a Lake Effect that improves the lives of our students, our faculty and staff, and our region. You will also learn of ways you, too, can make a difference and help LMC fulfill dreams.
