The BCCC Foundation is wonderful program providing much needed assistance, opportunities, and support to students. In my experiences on campus I have seen numerous students benefit from the hard work of this foundation, and the many people involved in growing and supporting the foundation. Their efforts to strengthen not only BCCC, but also the surrounding communities and raise awareness for education and community have been remarkable.
Education is the key to our future. BCCC does a terrific job in providing value and quality in education to so many in our community. Many would be unable to improve their job opportunities without BCCC.
The BCCC Foundations provides scholarship assistance for many students, plus does a great job in helping spread the word about Bucks County Community College. I've worked with a lot of nonprofits (including this one as a Board member) and have always found it to be one of the best.
