Support Higher Education

You have amazing power when you support higher education - the power to change lives, remove barriers, expand opportunities and help Bay College students be the best they can be, in and out of the classroom.

The Gift of Education

Donor support has helped catapult Bay College to a level of excellence once only aspired. Share your passion, invest in education and make a difference today.


Create a Scholarship

Leave a lasting memory, provide educational opportunities, eliminate financial barriers and change lives forever.

Endowed Scholarship

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

Annual Scholarship

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

Memorial Scholarship

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

Foundation Mission

The Bay College Foundation fosters giving, engages communities and manages financial gifts to support educational advancement, opportunities and student success.

Giving in Retirement

Charitable giving through an IRA, other retirement resources or charitable account saves taxes while supporting students and educational advancement.
