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 $7M in assets and one hundred plus 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 benefit thousands of students, increasing opportunity to people who often have the least access to higher education. Today, the Foundation awards over 300 student scholarships 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 and community, and to make a difference for future generations.

The Bay College Foundation office would like to help you learn about your giving options, including creating a scholarship, endowment gifts, IRA rollovers, estate planning, bequests in your will, tax impacts, naming opportunities, and other philanthropy related opportunities.  Call today!
