Emergency Funds

Thanks to the generosity of donors in our community, the LFCC Educational Foundation has several Emergency Assistance Funds to address exceptional financial hardship facing LFCC students caused by recent unexpected life events that could affect their continuing education. Examples of emergency situations include house fire, unanticipated medical issues, homelessness, marital separation, and job loss.

Types of Emergency Funds:

Veteran’s Emergency Assistance Funds

The Veteran Emergency Assistance Funds are designed to address exceptional financial hardship faced by LFCC Veteran students caused by recent unexpected life events that could affect their continuing education. Veterans also receive assistance and recognition through the generosity of the Grisdale Family Veterans Endowed Fund.

Veteran’s Emergency Loan for Books Fund

The Veteran’s Emergency Loan for Books Fund was established in 2010 by Jim Shannon an Adjunct Professor of Information Technology at LFCC and also received generous support from AMVETS Post #18. These funds are an interest free loan; therefore the recipient is expected to pay back the loan after the financial hardship has passed so funds are available to assist other Veterans.

The fund allows LFCC students who are Veterans to apply for monies to address exceptional financial hardship that could affect their ability to purchase textbooks for their classes.  Examples of emergency types are: delay in Veteran’s benefits, house fire, medical issues and assistance to students left homeless.
