About the FLCC Foundation

Private contributions are vital to maintaining a standard of excellence at Finger Lakes Community College.

Charting a Course Forward

The FLCC Foundation works closely with Finger Lakes Community College to make a positive impact that resonates beyond the classroom.

We recognize that our actions create a ripple effect. When we provide emergency aid to FLCC students in need, help struggling students stay enrolled, develop new scholarships that save time and money, or provide support for institutional initiatives, we are creating a current of hope — and building momentum for change.

The Foundation strives to support and advance the College by focusing on cultivating relationships, engaging alumni and partners, and sustaining an annual giving model that enhances the College's ability to respond quickly to the most pressing needs.
