I attended BCCC while transitioning from an out of state college to one back home. BCCC not only had the variety of classes I needed to explore, but the resources to understand my vision and career goals. Even though it was one semester, I am thankful for my time at BCCC and always enjoy a reason to visit campus. BCCC is a place to support because it supports so many others.

As a former professor at BCCC, I saw first hand the difference that the BCCC Foundation made in the lives of our students and the college. They funded scholarships for many who would otherwise be unable to attend college. These students have gone on to become nurses, teachers and productive members of our community. The Foundation also helped the college fund innovative programs and professional development which enrich the quality of services provided to the community. As a retired faculty member, I continue to donate to the Foundation because I can see that my contributions are having a direct effect on the community.

Bucks County Community College and the Bucks County Community College Foundation have been long time partners of mine and my employer, PNC. They are a fantastic organization to work with and they do important fundraising and development for the Bucks County, PA community. On the Foundation side, both Tobi and Jean, and several others, have always been accessible and transparent in their endeavors. We look forward to a continued partnership.
