The Lancaster County Career & Technology Foundation (LCCT Foundation) was established in 2003 to promote, enhance, and endow enriched vocational-technical learning opportunities at the Lancaster County Career & Technology Center (LCCTC)*. Our mission is To generate additional resources to support the LCCTC in training and developing world-class technical professionals. This is accomplished through a variety of fundraising programs including tax credit programs, individual contributions, sponsorships, grants, and special events.
Fly on the Run, the Foundation’s annual fly fishing tournament, raises significant dollars while showcasing the skills of LCCTC students in Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry, and Event Planning and Tourism Management. It offers participants a night of entertainment and a day of adventurous fishing, food and fun along pristine Lititz Run on the grounds of the Millport Conservancy. All of the funds raised through this tournament support our scholarship and student assistance programs to train the next generation of world-class technicians and crafts people to meet the needs of Lancaster County businesses. Additionally, ten percent of net revenues raised support the LCCT Foundation Endowment Fund.
The Taste of Success, Great Food for a Great Cause, raises funds for and recognizes graduates of the New Choices Career Development Program. New Choices is a life-changing career guidance program for underemployed single mothers and women in transition. Started as a program that relied almost exclusively on state funding, it has itself transitioned to a privately funded program sustained by strong, community-based strategic partnerships. Since 1985, this program has enabled more than 2,500 women to become successful and reliable full-time employees, changing their lives and the lives of their children. Like Fly on the Run, this event also demonstrates the capabilities of LCCTC students in the Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry, and Event Planning and Tourism Management programs.
Student & Business Leadership Symposium, a new event that supports scholarship and student programs to train the next generation of world-class technicians and crafts people to meet the needs of Lancaster County businesses, focuses on leadership recognition.

More than $1,100,000 in grants has been received from organizations like the Alcoa Foundation, Armstrong Foundation, High Foundation, Lancaster County Community Foundation, PA Dept. of Community and Economic Development, Steinman Foundation, and the United Way of Lancaster.
