The Bellevue College Foundation

Established in 1978, the BC Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that receives and manages individual and institutional gifts, grants and awards on behalf of Bellevue College.

Our ultimate goal is to assist our students in their educational journey so that they can realize their goals and dreams. We do this in several important ways, particularly by raising funds, and managing and awarding various grants and scholarship programs. Learn more about who we are and what we do.

Life-Changing Scholarships

The BC Foundation is in close touch with students so we know how important these scholarships are to their studies and their goals at BC and beyond. A scholarship can open new possibilities, as well as provide peace of mind that allows students to focus on their work.
