Mission: The Brunswick Community College Foundation, organized in 1982, is a charitable organization 501(c)(3) instituted to enhance the mission of Brunswick Community College to a level of excellence and purpose for students and the community. The Foundation is a vital resource for the acceptance and solicitation of all gifts for the continued growth and progress of Brunswick Community College. The Foundation enables the college to meet a number of diverse needs that could not be achieved solely with state funding. Through advocacy, influence and financial support these leaders ensure the commitment to the community college philosophy. They support the mission and enhance the goals and lives of the students. The Foundation is governed by more than 20 board members and volunteer directors as well as honorary, ex-officio directors. The college president and other key administrators also serve. Because of the Foundation’s structure, friends and alumni are also involved in fundraising initiatives and asset management programs.
