Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Students rely on LSC for Associate Degrees, certifications for work in high-demand industries, and credits that enable them to transfer anywhere by providing more than 180 programs of study to 90,000 students. LSC is training tomorrow’s workforce today and redefining the community college experience to support student success. The mission of Lone Star College is to provide comprehensive educational opportunities and programs to enrich lives.

A priority in supporting students is the LSC Promise Scholarship created to break down the barriers to earning a college degree by providing two years of “last dollar scholarship” for students after financial aid, grants and scholarship awards are exhausted. LSC Promise scholarship recipients are full-time students who are also dedicated to 15 hours of community service per semester. The Foundation also partners with LSC System faculty and leadership in seeking major in-kind and equipment donations from corporations that prepare students to become productive community members amidst a competitive workforce and challenging economy. Donations of state-of-the-art equipment and cutting edge programs helps to ensure that LSC students are ready to make an impact on day one of their careers.

The LSC Foundation builds relationships with individuals, corporations and non-profit organizations through a robust fundraising program that includes corporate partnerships, major gifts, in-kind gifts, employee giving and two special events, the annual Drive for Scholarships Golf Tournament and StarGala auction and dinner.

Founded in 1991, the Foundation has expanded its initial investment of $20,000 into an extensive portfolio of over $28 million. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided over $14 million in scholarships to nearly 14,500 students, as well as more than $6 million in program support.
