The Gift of Giving

Do you ever stop and think about what impactful gifts you have received in life? Education is a journey, a lifelong opportunity to gain knowledge, broaden skill sets, gain new experiences, make lifelong connections, and change futures. Education is the gift that keeps on giving.

Will You Help?

Whether you support the quest to Educate All, fund a scholarship, or support another area of your choosing, right now Bay College students need you on their team with your best gift possible. You have amazing power when you invest in higher education – the power to change lives, break down barriers, expand opportunities, and help students attain an affordable education. It all starts with you!  Choose your passion, open doors and unleash potential. You will change a life forever.



Drive to Educate All

Every year, Bay College Foundation takes a step back and looks at the depth and breadth of their impact on the College mission: student success, community success and a culture of success. Higher education is critical to the success of students, their families and our communities. A college credential is the means to change - advancing individual lives, families, businesses and the future of our communities. 

Quality education, accessible to all, equates to a trained population with skillsets for full employment and productive citizenship. Financial resource is the number one barrier for entering and completing college. Nearly 70% of Bay College students qualify for financial assistance; living with financial stress makes it even more difficult to focus on education. Even with nearly 300 Foundation scholarship awards, the need for financial assistance is great and continues to grow.

The 2020-21 Drive to Educate All will assist Bay College in this valiant effort to provide educational opportunities for more students. Will you consider a gift of $40, $80, or more today to support this great work? All gifts, large and small, make an impact and will be put to immediate use, helping advance individual lives and the communities in which we live, work, and play!

Please make your contribution today to help Bay College accelerate our progress in the 2020 Drive to Educate All. Let’s team together to support one student at a time in their journey to receive a college education and obtain the resources needed to propel their future success. After all, they will be our leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you for all that you have given and all you do in the quest to advance lives. Education is the gift that keeps on giving, it lasts a lifetime!

With sincere gratitude,

 Dr. John and Valerie Hickner
