In 2014-2015, $28,058.76 was raised by our very generous employees. By making a gift to Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation, you will be taking an extra step that further helps us realize the College’s vision of providing programs of excellence in academics and training that foster economic vitality in our community.

Let's challenge ourselves to stand together, as a College family, to help change the lives of our students by supporting our Foundation. Even a small monthly donation of $5 can lift students up to achieve their dreams of a better life through education.

100% Giving, No gift is too small

Remember that this tax-deductible donation can be given monthly through payroll deduction, and allows our Foundation to support scholarships, work-study programs, purchase new equipment for our classrooms, and fund faculty professional development. 

Let's show our community partners that WE will take the first step, and that their contribution, together with ours, can change lives!


What the Foundation Can Do for the College

In fulfilling its mission, the Foundation provides financial assistance to students through scholarships, a work-study program, and emergency loans and grants; purchases state-of-the-art equipment for use in classrooms; sponsors faculty development through special projects; enables the College to achieve its institutional effectiveness goals; provides start-up costs for new programs; and solicits monies for other projects on campus. Private support through the Foundation enables Blue Ridge Community College to keep pace with the educational changes occurring in its service area and in the lives of its students, faculty and staff, and the citizens it serves.

Even though the Foundation is a separate, legal entity, it serves as a vessel for broadening support for the College through the involvement of its stakeholders who share in the College's mission and vision.

Help to create another success story today with your check, pledge, or payroll deduction through the Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign!

September 16, 2015, Campus Information Presentation

“I give to the Foundation because I want to give back and support a wonderful organization. Without the Foundation, I would not be where I am today. When I was a student in Surgical Technology, I was awarded one of the scholarships offered by the Foundation. This extra money helped me to be able to focus on my studies and not have to worry about working while I was in College. Because of this, I was able to focus 100% on my college education. Since I have become an employee at BRCC, the Foundation has also supported me in many of my professional development opportunities. I will continue to support the Foundation.”

Surgical Technology Instructor

"I know first-hand that education is key to creating and pursuing opportunities.  The BRCC Educational Foundation not only helps many in our community to pursue their educational dreams - it also affects every member of the BRCC family, both faculty and staff.  Please help us reach this year's goal of 100% participation in giving." 
Ben Kish
Director, Business Training and Personal Enrichment
