    1. LaGuardia is part of the City University of New York, a public institution, why does it need private support? 

      The State of New York provides only a portion of the College’s annual operating budget.

      Your gifts to the LaGuardia Community College Foundation are 100% tax deductible to the full extent of the law. All donors receive an letter acknowledging each gift, which can be used for tax purposes.

    3. How will my gift be used? 

      The mission of the LaGuardia Community College Foundation is to raise, manage, invest and distribute funds for the College in support of its immediate and long-term student, academic and facility needs, goals and priorities. Funds are used primarily for scholarships, emergency support for students, textbooks, transportation, faculty research and programs. Learn more.
