Lake Superior College and LSC Foundation
Annual Report Hit Donors' Mailboxes this Week
Supporters of the Lake Superior College Foundation are receiving the 2019/20 Annual Community Report in their mailboxes this week (was mailed on Monday), a couple weeks ahead of when the report will be made public and shared on our website. The report is an opportunity to reflect on the many success stories, accomplishments and other highlights over the past couple of years, as well as thank Foundation donors for helping support students and services at LSC.

While we are proud to celebrate the success of LSC and the incredible impact LSC Foundation donors have made over the past couple of years, we also know the need for support is greater than ever as many students continue to struggle financially due to economic hardships caused by the pandemic. If you're not already contributing to the Foundation, we hope you'll consider making a contribution. LSC employees can also sign up for employee giving, through payroll deduction, by filling out the Employee Giving form on the LSC Foundation page. Thank you for your support! We hope you enjoy the report.
