Your Present. Their Future.


The LCAD Annual Fund provides essential support to our core programs and student services. An unrestricted gift to this fund is the most impactful gift a person can provide to the College and our students. When you support the LCAD Annual Fund, you help to bridge the gap between income from tuition and the actual cost of providing the most outstanding art and design education possible.

Specifically, you enable the College to do the following:

• Keep education affordable
• Hire and retain talented faculty
• Purchase and maintain state-of-the-art technology
• Enrich the student experience
• Enhance the efficacy and safety of campus facilities
• Bolster and preserve library resources
• Produce gallery exhibitions and visiting artist programs
