President’s Circle

This year we expanded our most prestigious giving program to recognize any contribution that supports the students and programs at Long Beach City College.

We hope that, in doing so, we can more appropriately recognize the generosity that you, our donors, provide to LBCC. By supporting our students, you are helping both the Foundation and the College work toward the mission of providing an excellent education for Long Beach residents and those of surrounding communities.

As we look towards the College’s 100th anniversary, we call on you to continue supporting our students, staff, and faculty as we work together in Funding Our Future.

The President’s Circle is Long Beach City College’s premier giving society that provides essential leadership development, access, and achievement opportunities for outstanding LBCC students through the following programs:


Establish a Scholarship

The success of our students is one of the most important aspects of the mission of Long Beach City College. Thanks to the generosity of various donors, LBCC offers many opportunities for students to achieve their educational and career goals through additional financial support. Donate any amount to the LBCC General Scholarship, or you can establish a named or endowed scholarship.


Associate Groups

The Long Beach City College Foundation Associate Groups support specific areas of the College’s academic and athletics life. Members of these groups are generally interested in the specific areas that they support. Most groups meet once per month during the academic year and hold fundraising events. Contact the Foundation if you are interested in joining one or more of these groups.
