President’s Circle


The President’s Circle was created to build stronger relationships between LBCC and the community, and support existing and new campus programs. To facilitate this, the President’s Circle supports LBCC in two significant ways:

Providing Valuable Scholarships

President’s Circle members provide support for LBCC’s most deserving and accomplished students through annual scholarships and leadership initiatives like the President’s Ambassadors program. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been distributed to LBCC students to assist them in reaching their educational goals. President’s Circle members are recognized at a reception in the fall and spring.

Building Stronger Relationships 

Double Platinum Circle and Platinum Circle members underwrite the annual State of the College luncheon, LBCC”s signature community event. The event is free to all community members, who can learn about LBCC’s recent progress, new initiatives and goals for the coming year. Double Platinum and Platinum Circle members receive special recognition during the State of the College.

No matter what level you give to LBCC, you will receive the benefit of being invited to exclusive LBCC events, as well as knowing that you are contributing to a thriving community by helping deserving students achieve their education goals.

We invite you to join other community leaders in helping Long Beach City College students and further support the College’s goals for student success. Become a member of the President’s Circle, Platinum Circle or Double Platinum Circle today!
