Boozhoo and welcome to the Office of Institutional Advancement. The mission of the Leech Lake Tribal College OIA is to maximize public and private support for Leech Lake Tribal College, promoting fulfillment of the college mission and benefiting the individuals and communities we serve. Alumni and friends like you help us to provide LLTC students with a unique educational experience combining fully accredited education based on Anishinaabe philosophy and values. The OIA is fully committed to ensuring that your contribution sees the maximum return on your investment. Your guidance will help us determine if you would like to see the immediate impact of a student scholarship, become a part of a capital project, or serve the next seven generations of students through an endowment or planned gift.

The LLTC campus has seen great infrastructure growth since the move to our current location in 2005. Our core operating funding is still over 30% below the level authorized by law, which means we need your support to cover that gap and give our students the best education we can. Because the LLTC campus is located on trust land, we are not eligible for state bonding funds like state colleges and universities are - this means we need your support for capital projects like our new library. In addition a vast majority of LLTC students come from families near or below the poverty line - they need your continued support for scholarships to enable them to develop the education and skills they need to create a better life for themselves, their families, and most importantly our community.

Take a few moments to look through the Give to LLTC portion of the website, and learn about the many different ways you can support the crucial work being done at Leech Lake Tribal College. With a difficult economy and federal funding that is actually less in inflation-adjusted dollars than what LLTC received when it was founded in 1990, your support is needed now more than ever!! Please consider this an open invitation to visit our campus, and you can always call me at 218-335-4262 or email me at bill.blackwell@lltc.edu for more information.
