The Lone Star College Foundation's mission is to change lives through student scholarships and quality educational programs achieved by excellence in relationship building, fundraising, and investment management.
Lone Star College Foundation impacts students' lives every day by reducing the financial barriers to a quality, college education. More than 24,500 students have felt that impact with over $23.2 million awarded in scholarships and nearly $10 million in program support since the Foundation's inception in 1991. Through tuition scholarships, emergency aid relief or textbook funds, partner with the Foundation today to make your impact on the next generation. Lone Star College enrolls over 80,000 students each semester providing high quality academic transfer and career training education and trains tomorrow's workforce today.
The Foundation builds relationships with individuals, corporations and non-profit organizations through a robust fundraising program that includes corporate partnerships, major gifts, employee giving and two special events:
Today's workforce is competitive and the economy is challenging. It is important that our students participate in cutting edge programs in top-notch facilities. This is why the Foundation partners with Lone Star College faculty and leadership in seeking donations of state-of-the-art equipment so that they are ready to make an impact on day one of their careers.
Ninety-one percent of Lone Star College students remain in their communities and become the backbone of a prosperous and functioning society. This combination of higher student incomes and increased business productivity adds nearly $3 billion to the Houston economy. Due to today's changing workforce demands and the needs of our local economy, our donors' support of the Foundation is vital, as well as a great return on investment.
Lone Star College is the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area and one of the fastest-growing community colleges in the nation. Not only great in size, LSC is a key driver and growing contributor to the local and regional economy. The Foundation is proud to support student scholarships and college programs at all LSC facilities: Lone Star College-CyFair, Lone Star College-Houston North, Lone Star College-Kingwood, Lone Star College-Montgomery, Lone Star College-North Harris, Lone Star College-Online, Lone Star College-Tomball, and Lone Star College-University Park.
