Landmark College Giving Day is when alumni, students, and parents come together to support the college they love. When Landmark College announced on March 11 that students would not be returning to campus for an extended period during the COVID-19 pandemic, we needed to pause for a moment.
As the world deals with the massive scale of this health crisis, what continues to inspire us is the desire among the LC community to help in any way they can. Within hours of President Eden’s announcement, we had heard from many community members who just wanted to say, “let me know what I can do.” Some suggested sending care packages to students, while others asked if there was a more formal way they could assist.
In that spirit, we realized LC Giving Day became even more important.
Because we’ve had to cancel major in-person fundraising events that help the College meet its yearly budgetary needs, the online Giving Day becomes even more critical. It allows you and the rest of the LC family to come together, both in spirit and action, to help the College persevere.
Just like our LC Sharks motto: “Always Moving Forward,” the College has implemented strategies that will help all of us manage this crisis while maintaining academic continuity, continuing our unique mission, and supporting our students and alumni—but we need your help!
For this year’s Giving Day, we’re asking you to make a gift of “perseverance” to one of the existing efforts listed below:
- The COVID-19 Collective Response Fund will provide Landmark College the flexible resources to address the unexpected costs due to the extraordinary circumstances of the global COVID-19 outbreak. Funds will support LC with online program growth, access for students, and other areas of the College that are affected by this pandemic and its economic consequences. Gifts to the COVID-19 Collective Response Fund will help LC respond to both the immediate, as well as long-term, needs that will arise from this global crisis.
- Scholarship Support continues to serve our students with the most need. In these uncertain times, growing Landmark College’s scholarship fund will allow us to provide more financial support for students who would benefit from the unique educational opportunities offered at the College.
- Undesignated Gifts allow Landmark College to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of an LC education, as well as fulfill the College’s greatest prioritized needs. Prioritized needs of the college vary from year to year. These gifts allow LC to wisely place donations in areas that serve in the best interest of the College at large.
During this one day event, you can make a world of difference for your community members. Please consider supporting Landmark College during our Giving Day, April 23, 2020.
Thank you for helping the College persevere!
