About the Foundation

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 1982 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…
