There are numerous ways to make a donation to the students of Los Angeles City College who are in need of support.

Giving to Los Angeles City College

Los Angeles City College (LACC) has been serving the Los Angeles community and beyond since 1929 providing quality academic and vocational education at an affordable price to all those who seek to establish and/or advance their careers and improve their lives. Access to a higher education is the central focus of our mission.

Generous donations to Los Angeles City College Foundation ensure that opportunities exist for students who otherwise might not be able to attend an institute of higher learning. A solid education leads to quality jobs and careers, which, in turn, build strong families and communities.

Annual Fund – Unrestricted and Restricted Funds

The LACC Annual Fund provides direct and immediate support to the College’s most pressing operational needs including student programs, teaching equipment and technology, library materials, special campus & community events, and faculty/staff professional development.

This fund houses unrestricted funds and can be used at the discretion of the Executive Director of the LACC Foundation in conjunction with the LACC President, with the approval of the Chancellor of the LACCD. Gifts can be restricted to any academic or vocational area to be used for programmatic and curriculum needs. No minimum gift amount.
