A Community Of Working Partners
There are many ways to support Lane. Beside monetary gifts, Lane's Foundation greatly depends on individuals and businesses to volunteer time, expertise, and services.
March through May
Readers are needed to review LCC Scholarship applications from March through May each year.
Harvest Dinner Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of set-up tasks. The primary task for these volunteers is to put together merchandise into gift bags. Some donations will need assembly, drawing and other decorative boxes need recovering, possibly helping with bidder packets, transporting some items between rooms, and other duties as assigned. Requirements: Must be able to sit or stand while using a repetitive motion, some tasks may require lifting of 25-40 pounds, and you must not have any existing or prior injuries that could be exacerbated by doing this work. This is a great task for someone who wants to donate a few hours of time in a fun and relatively easy environment.
Late November to Early December
Holiday Card Volunteers
Volunteers and scholarship recipients are needed to assist the LCC Foundation in sharing our gratitude with our supporters by personally signing holiday cards. Card recipients are long time supporters of the Lane Community College Foundation. These wonderful people help fund scholarships and projects that support the college and students. It is easy to do and a great way to give back.
Below are a few of the most common ways you, your employees, or your business can make such a gift to Lane.

Each year the Lane Community College Board of Education appoints over 800 community members to our advisory committees. These advisory committees are critical to the success of our professional technical programs and our students. Addressing the employment and education needs of apprenticeship, business, industry, labor, and professions is the goal of our professional technical programs, and your expertise in the field is a key component in meeting that goal.
We have come to rely on the assistance of advisory committee members in program design and evaluation, community interaction, student recruitment, legislative advocacy, fundraising and securing equipment donations. These activities make a huge difference in our ability to provide a quality learning experience for our students. It will be even more important in the future as we continue to deal with fiscal challenges.
