LAKE ERIE COLLEGE > GIVING TO LEC > SCHOLARSHIP CHALLENGE

What:

Challenge to alumni, parents, and friends of Lake Erie College from our Board of Directors to match their personal gifts of $500,000 for current scholarships. The result will be $1 million in new scholarships.


"For many of us, scholarships were an integral part of attending Lake Erie College. Scholarships change lives. Now is our chance to give back!”

Janeane R. Cappara ’95 ’04, B.S., M.B.A., J.D.
President, Lake Erie College National Alumni Board


"Scholarship support is crucial to student success.”

Dr. Dana A. Dennis ’76
Vice Chair, Board of Directors


The Match:

Qualifying gifts for new current scholarships will be paired 1 to 1 with gifts from the College Board of Directors, up to a $500,000 pool. A $50 gift will result in a $100 award. A $1,000 gift will result in a $2,000 award.

If your employer has a matching gift program, your gift could grow even more. For example, a $1,000 gift matched 1 to 1 by your employer and then matched by the College Board of Directors could result in a $4,000 scholarship award. If you need help with your employer matching gift, please contact us.

Details:

Higher education transforms lives. Once you enroll in, and eventually graduate from, Lake Erie College, your life will never be the same. But a college education is expensive, and scholarship support is crucial to student success.

Members of the Lake Erie College Board of Directors recognize that fact and they are personally doing something about it. You can, too!

They have committed more than $500,000 to the Board of Directors Scholarship Challenge. Now they are challenging alumni, parents and friends of Lake Erie College to match their commitment by June 30. That will result in a pool of $1 million in new scholarships.

The need for scholarships remains great, especially in today’s economy. They often make the difference in helping students decide to enroll in the College and complete a degree. This new Board initiative underscores the critical importance of scholarships in allowing our students to earn a life-changing college education.

Our Board of Directors has joined with President Michael T. Victor in freezing tuition for the coming year. Coupled with the Board of Directors Scholarship Challenge, that can make a huge impact on students.

Under President Victor and his administration, enrollment has grown dramatically. The number of full-time degree-seeking undergraduate students has increased from 566 in the fall of 2006 to 906 in the fall of 2012. One reason is our ability to offer scholarships and grants.
