First Ever Virtual Gala: Community Rays
Shine a ray of light for LBCC students.
This year's event is over, but you can still view the event video
It's been a year like no other, but during these times, Linn-Benton Community College’s mission to empower people to succeed in our community – including our health care workers, educators, small business owners and first responders – is more critical than ever. Our community has responded to these times with incredible generosity and support ... knowing that the learning that takes place at LBCC provides a bright future as we all rebuild and rebound in the months and years ahead.

Need more reasons to be involved?
You already know that Linn-Benton Community College is the resource for higher education that constantly opens pathways from poverty to prosperity. Yet more than 75% of our students cannot afford to pay for college without help – and in the last few years, applications for LBCC scholarships have increased by more than 300%. Getting the chance to attend and finish a degree means taking pride in your future, getting a good job, providing for your children, gaining skills to contribute to the community, and strengthening the Mid-Willamette Valley.
Through our partnership with you and the other caring community members, organizations and businesses in Linn and Benton Counties the LBCC Foundation is working to raise critical funds that will enable hardworking students to have the opportunity to succeed.
