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:

President’s Ambassadors & Scholars

President’s Circle members provide support to Long Beach City College’s most accomplished and deserving students through annual scholarships and leadership development initiatives.

College Promise

Long Beach City College’s nationally recognized partnership with Long Beach Unified School District, California State University, Long Beach, and the City of Long Beach provides seamless education, preschool through college, to our community students. Half a million dollars are awarded through the Long Beach City College Foundation each year to fully fund tuition at LBCC for our local students.

State of the College

Members of the President’s Circle who support at the highest capacity help LBCC fund its State of the College annual address to the community. In addition, members at this level make it possible to produce our Annual Report and receive special recognition in the publication.
