The Lower Columbia College Foundation was established in 1976 through generous gifts from Phillip and Jeanne Wertheimer.

The vision of the Wertheimer family, along with then LCC President David Story and the members of the initial Foundation Board of Directors, was to create avenues for excellence in education at LCC.

The Wertheimer Society

Phillip and Jeanne WertheimerIn honor of LCC’s first benefactors, the Wertheimer Society has been established to recognize and honor donors who have generously provided, or plan to provide, gifts to the Lower Columbia College Foundation through bequests, trusts, and other life income gifts.

Society membership is a reflection of the highest of values and commitment to future educational excellence at LCC.
