The LBCC College Promise
How the LBCC Foundation supports educational opportunities for its students


Long Beach’s Promise extends the opportunity of a college education to every student in the Long Beach Unified School District to create a more vibrant community. This innovative and nationally recognized initiative is transforming the lives of students and the city’s economic future by placing higher education within reach for all.

The Long Beach City College Foundation annually gifts more than $500,000 for eligible first-year, full-time LBCC students through generous contributions from our community. As California commences its state-wide College Promise, the LBCC Foundation has committed to provide funding for eligible full-time, second-year LBCC students from Long Beach Unified School District.

By making a promise you are helping provide students with the following necessities:

  • Tuition for one year – $1,200
  • Books for one year – $2,500
  • Fees and parking for one year – $250

If you would like to make a promise and help make a life-changing difference for Long Beach City College students, please donate today!
