LBCC Foundation

Over 25,000 Viking students are being impacted by COVID-19,  especially our most vulnerable first-generation and low-income students.

The Long Beach City College Foundation and Alumni Association are partnering with LBCC to support students in the areas of housing, food, technology, transportation, and mental health. In support of this partnership, the LBCC Foundation’s Board of Governors matched the first $10,000 raised for the Student Emergency Fund.   Our community again stepped up and met the challenge when longtime supporter The Don Temple Family Charitable Foundation and an Anonymous donor created an additional $10,000 match.  We thank you for your generosity!
The Foundation is once again reaching out to the community to match a new $10,000 donation by the Long Beach Rotary Charitable Foundation.  This donation gives you an additional opportunity to double your impact and support our students as they work to finish the semester and achieve their goals.  With your support, we can help them cross the finish line!

Please consider giving today to double your impact!
