Ways of Giving


You can become a member of the Bergen family with a gift to the Foundation. The Foundation accepts gifts in all amounts – no gift is too small. Gifts may be designated for a specific use, or they may be directed to the Foundation’s unrestricted fund to be used wherever it is most needed within the College.
A contribution to the “Securing Our Future Endowed Scholarship Fund” will help ensure available scholarship dollars for deserving students for current and future generations. With a gift of $10,000 or more, you can establish a named endowment in an area of importance to you, your family, or your corporation. Whatever the purpose, your contribution will benefit the residents of this community for years to come.
Donors may choose to establish a planned gift, trust or life insurance policy to acknowledge the education received and values learned at BCC.
Although the easiest gift to give is cash, it is also possible to:

• Make a multi-year pledge
• Apply for employer-sponsored gift matching
• Donate appreciated securities
• Name the BCC Foundation as the beneficiary in an insurance policy
• Give personal property or real estate
• Remember the Bergen Community College Foundation and a selected fund in your will or annuity

The Bergen Community College Foundation staff is available to assist you and your financial adviser in planning the details of such a gift. Please contact the Foundation at 201-447-7117 to discuss options available.
All gifts made payable to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by federal and state laws.
