Donate to Lawson State Community College Foundation

Figuratively

Lawson State Community College is giving the world to its students. You can help. Many of our students would not be able to attend Lawson State without our scholarships and financial aid packages. We could not offer these students financial assistance without your help. Foundation gifts allow us to continue to attract and support high caliber students to touch the lives of others with the gift of education.

Establish a Scholarship Fund

  • Annual Scholarship An Annual Scholarship

    An Annual Scholarship for immediate distribution (within the academic calendar year) may be established with a contribution of any amount. An annual scholarship provides a yearly award to students who meet the criteria established by you and the college. The scholarship may be established with a one-time gift awarded until the funds are diminished or with a designated award amount every year. A one time only scholarship is also available.

  • An Endowed Scholarship An Endowed Scholarship

    Scholarship endowments enable you to create a scholarship in perpetuity. A minimum donation of $5,000.00 is required to establish an endowment within the Lawson State Foundation. The principal is invested and a portion of the return is used each year to support the scholarship. If there is any remainder, it is added back to the principal to promote growth and protect against inflation.

  • A Named Annual Scholarship A Named Annual Scholarship

    (John Doe Scholarship Fund) may be established with a minimum contribution of $500 annually.

  • A Named Endowed Scholarship A Named Endowed Scholarship

    (The John Doe Endowed Salute to Excellence Scholarship/Award) in which the principle contribution remains intact and only a portion of the interest income is distributed as scholarship. This is a great way to honor or memorialize a friend or family member and help LSCC students at the same time. The endowed level is $5,000, but the fund can be established with a smaller gift.
