Ways to Give

woman looking at cameraThe BC Foundation advances its mission of removing barriers to student success through student scholarships and educational program support, but this would not be possible without support from our community.

Donors are the critical link in providing students with the opportunity to make their educational dreams come true.

Gifts to the BC Foundation can be structured to support students, specific programs, or given to be used where there is the greatest need.

Choose how you would like contribute:

Become Exceptional Luncheon

Join us on April 14, 2015 for our 16th Annual Become Exceptional Luncheon!

Annual Fund

A gift to the annual fund will have a profound and immediate impact on students and educational programs. The BC Foundation annual fund supports general scholarships, mini-grants, and equipment purchases – just to name a few. To learn about our giving levels and benefits please click here.

Buy a Brick

With a commemorative brick, your donation will go to support all of our ongoing BC Foundation initiatives. Whether purchased in your name or in honor of another, bricks serve as a permanent legacy on our campus grounds. Bricks may be personalized in two different sizes and are installed in our central courtyard by the iconic water fountain. Be sure to check out the new courtyard that was completed in the summer of 2013 and is ready to showcase your gift to the college. Order yours today!

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are an excellent way to double or even triple the value of your gift. Simply check with your employer to see if they are one of the 200 or more area companies that match charitable gifts by their employees. Usually, it only takes a simple form, obtained from your company’s personnel office. Fill it out, mail it to us, and we’ll take care of the rest. And you will be credited with the value of your gift plus your company’s match!

Major Gifts

Major gifts are contributions of substantial size dedicated toward a specific program or project such as the establishment of a named scholarship, buying specific instructional equipment or building new facilities. These gifts have a lasting impact on students as they provide opportunities for years to come.  Contact Mareth Flores for more information.

Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving, often called “planned giving,” may allow you to make a more meaningful contribution than you ever thought possible. You may be able to leave a deep and lasting legacy for generations of students to come while also qualifying for tax savings and other advantages that may actually increase the value of your estate for your heirs. Legacy Giving takes many forms, including bequests, living trusts and life insurance.
