When Dr. Fosbery transferred the ownership of the school to its alumni following his retirement in 1935, he knew in his heart that LCC should belong to students and alumni whose belief in the school transcends generations and geography.
His conviction that LCC would grow and thrive under your care holds true to this day. He trusted in the community and that, together, we would “stride forward boldly, whatever the future be.”
Today, we are facing that future and it’s challenging. That’s why we need your help.
Your continued support of the school provides flexibility, allowing us to adapt to change, to the unknown and to uncertainty. With 245 gifts received (as of January 2021), we are more than halfway to our goal of 400 gifts. Help us reach our goal before June 30, 2021. Please consider donating a gift - of any amount - in support of our annual fund and the area that is most meaningful to you:
- Emergency Bursary Fund: your gift will support current LCC families who are experiencing financial setbacks due to the global health crisis
- General Bursary Fund or a named fund within the LCC Foundation: your gift will help ensure that deserving students have an opportunity to benefit from the LCC experience.
- Non Nobis Solum Fund: your gift to this new fund will help enhance our academic, arts and athletics and co-curricular programs.
About the Foundation
Established in 1992, the Lower Canada College Foundation is a registered charitably entity led by its own board of directors. This arms-length entity is devoted to fundraising and management of endowed special funds with the intent to provide a perpetual source of financial support to LCC for its financial aid and awards program. Every dollar donated to the LCC Foundation is held in perpetuity and only the interest, a maximum of 5% of the capital, is granted annually to the LCC’s financial aid and awards program.
