The mission of LWTech Foundation is to actively engage business and the community
in supporting LWTech, its students, and its role in building a strong economy.
The Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization established to raise money and provide support for LWTech students, faculty, staff, and programs. The LWTech Foundation provides hardworking and highly motivated students with scholarships and emergency financial assistance, enabling them to pursue their academic and career goals.
The LWTech Foundation also provides support for instructional programs, including: funds for materials, equipment and projects, professional development opportunities for faculty, and opportunities for students to compete in regional and national competitions. Lastly, the LWTech Foundation plays a vital role in developing and maintaining relationships with corporations, businesses, community organizations, and individuals for the benefit of the college.
The Foundation awards nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Scholarships go to students to help with tuition, fees, books and childcare. The Foundation also provides funds for college activities such as fairs and festivals of an educational or cultural nature. Awards are also made for faculty and staff excellence or to support attendance at professional development activities. There are also several student emergency funds. Your donations support all these Foundation efforts.
The Bright Futures Benefit Breakfast is the LWTech Foundation’s annual fundraising event to raise critical funds for student scholarships, program support, and the student emergency fund.
