The Gift of Education

Donor support has helped catapult Bay College to a level of excellence once only aspired. Learn how you can share your passion and make a big difference today. The possibilities are endless.


Giving in Retirement

Put some gold in your golden years. Charitable giving through your IRA saves you taxes while supporting students and educational advancement. Create an opportunity to reach out and touch the lives of others for years to come.

Create a Scholarship

Provide educational opportunities and eliminate financial barriers by awarding deserving students.

Leave a lasting legacy with your own scholarship in perpetuity, funding student scholarships or programs year after year. A $10,000 donation paying 5% creates a $500 scholarship forever.

Create an annual scholarship award honoring a special someone, family, alumni, organization or business. Funds are update annually and scholarships awarded to students the upcoming academic year.

Establish a scholarship in celebration of an event or loved one. Memorial gifts may be in memory of named individuals or pooled in the Memorial Scholarship Fund. Families receive acknowledgement of all gifts.

Making a Difference

Dear Donor, thank you so much for the scholarship you've given me. I cried I was so happy. I couldn’t believe it. I’ve been dreaming of going back to school. I wanted the chance to do better and this has been amazing! I can’t wait to continue to work hard and make a difference wherever I go or whatever I do.
