MISSION STATEMENT

The Mission of the Barstow College Foundation is to assist Barstow Community College in building alliances with the community through the solicitation of gifts, bequests, monies & property, for the benefit of its students and college educational programs. 

WHO WE ARE…

The Barstow College Foundation (BCF) was established in 1981 by a group of individuals that were passionate about higher education and dedicated to making a difference.  As a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit benefit corporation and auxiliary organization of Barstow Community College, the Foundation was organized to promote, assist, and accept gifts, property and funds to be used for the sole benefit of the College.

WHAT WE DO…

With a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of diverse members and leaders from our community, the Foundation facilitates gifts and raises charitable contributions through our annual fundraising events and initiatives  to provide scholarship funds that assist students in realizing their goal of higher education and to support special program needs of the college.   


WE HELP THE COLLEGE IMPACT LIVES BY MAKING FRIENDS & RAISING FUNDS. 


WHY WE DO IT…

We believe in the positive impact of higher education on the lives of students and our community.

We believe in making sure as many students as possible have the opportunity to turn educational dreams into reality.

…Your generous donation is a true blessing for me. At the end of last semester, my laptop broke. I was unsure how I was going to continue my online classes. Thanks to this scholarship, I had the funds to purchase a new one…. Thank you for motivating me to continue my education and pursue my goals.  I am now certain that returning to school was the right decision, and I am forever grateful for your investment in my education. ”
