Foundation Annual Meeting
October 19, 2016
3:00 pm CST / 4:00 pm EST
The Bay de Noc Community College Foundation was established as a non-profit in 1972 with gifts from friends and employees to support the mission of the college. Today, the Foundation manages over $8M in assets and one hundred plus scholarships, project funds and endowments.
But assets alone cannot measure the success of the Foundation. Since its very beginning, scholarship support for academically deserving students has been a priority. Foundation scholarships also assist students who often have the least access to higher education, primarily due to financial barriers. Today, the Foundation awards over 300 student scholarships annually for academic excellence and financial assistance.
In addition to scholarships, funds provide academic advancement, cultural enrichment and facility expansion. While state and local funding provide basic services, support from the Foundation through private contributions has made possible technical enhancements, educational innovations, arts expansion and campus improvements otherwise impossible.
Directed and in-kind contributions of equipment, materials, books, artworks, manpower and the like also
improve the overall educational environment and experience. With your support, the Foundation is well positioned to assist the College, students and our community - making a difference for future generations.
