Established in 1968, the Laramie County Community College Foundation exists to develop and sustain support for Laramie County Community College through solicitation, management and recognition of donations. The Foundation is dedicated to providing services and assistance to students, faculty, staff and the community, thereby enhancing a sense of tradition and pride in the college. Though it is separate from the college, the Foundation works closely with the college to generate private gifts for the college's major fund-raising priorities. In addition to raising money effectively, the Foundation provides careful management of funds already raised.
With the assistance of the Wyoming State Legislature's challenge grant program which began in 2004 the LCCC Foundation has been able to match more than $9,000,000.00 in donor gifts. These generous gifts dedicated to helping our students achieve academic success have brought the Foundation's total endowment up to $45 million.
