Give to Laney College

Thank you for taking an interest in helping support our Laney College students and programs. Your contribution makes you an investor in the success of our students. Your gift will help our students rise!

You can give to these three funds:

  • Laney College Fund 
    This fund helps support the College’s most important needs (programs, facilities, etc.).
  • The President’s Emergency Scholarship Fund
    Laney College provides one-time support scholarships for students facing unforeseen financial difficulties that impact their ability to attend school.
  • EOPS Emergency Fund
    This fund supports students in our Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS). The EOPS program’s primary goal is to encourage the enrollment, retention, and transfer of students disadvantaged by language, social, economic and educational circumstances, and to facilitate the successful completion of their goals and objectives in college.

All charitable gifts to Laney College are tax-deductible and processed through the Peralta Colleges Foundation –  a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
