LCCSF Fund Drive

The La Conner Community Scholarship Foundation (LCCSF) began a fund drive in June that will end on Nov. 30. A service minded La Conner High School alumnus has committed to matching all contributions up to $50,000. To date, nearly 40 donors have contributed $13,385.

Founded in 1989, our Foundation’s purpose is to provide scholarship monies for graduating La Conner High School students pursuing post-secondary education. Scholarship funds may pay for two or four year colleges, technical/trade schools well as other forms of continuing education. Since its inception in 1989, the Foundation has awarded more than $800,000 to La Conner graduates.

While we thank those who have donated, we remain well short of our goal. Our greater La Conner community has a population of nearly 3,000 – yet we have seen donations from fewer than 40 people.

We ask that you make a donation of any size, remem-bering that the match will double your gift, which is likely tax deductible under our 501(c)3 designation.

Please help continue La Conner’s tradition of strong community support!
