We are BC

We are BC

We are BC!  Alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends – Nobody knows BC better than you!”


Your investment in BC sustains every aspect of the College’s values: student success, teaching and learning excellence, college life and culture and community engagement and enrichment. Each year, donors like you enable the BC Foundation to fulfill our commitment to support these values through awarding scholarships, recognizing faculty and staff, strengthening curriculum, supporting student programs and bringing innovative technology to classrooms.

We are BC. Futures fueled by philanthropy and leading progress in our community.


Fueled by philanthropy 

Our collaborative effort solidifies the foundation needed for BC to continue to provide lifelong educational development of its students consistent with their needs, interests, and abilities while strengthening the economic, social, and cultural life of our diverse community.

Many opportunities students have are made possible by generous annual gifts, and being actively engaged in philanthropy connects you to students, faculty and staff, alumni and the BC community.

Bellevue College is tax-assisted, not tax-supported. With only 24% of BC’s revenue coming from the state, and nearly 1/3 of students in need of financial assistance not receiving aid, the funds we raise directly support BC students and the programs they enroll in.
