Community Foundation Fund Established to Support
Black Hawk Local College Access Network

The Black Hawk Local College Access Network (LCAN) has established the Black Hawk LCAN Opportunity Awaits Fund with the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. This special project fund will help provide Hawkeye Community College, Allen College, Upper Iowa University, University of Northern Iowa, and community nonprofit agencies financial support to assist with barriers preventing students from completing their degree. The Black Hawk LCAN is dedicated to removing obstacles nontraditional students face when trying to enroll or remain in college. By creating a financial resource for nontraditional students we are providing a lifeline to students that couldn't have otherwise realized their college dream. This program benefits students, employers, and the community as a whole. 

Financial gifts to support Black Hawk LCAN’s fund are welcome and can be made to the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, 3117 Greenhill Circle, Cedar Falls, IA, 50613. Checks should be made payable to the Black Hawk LCAN Opportunity Awaits Fund. Gifts can also be made on the Community Foundation’s secure website at fund.cfneia.org/LCAN. Donors to the fund can take advantage of normal federal deductions for charitable gifts.
