6. About The Foundation

The Bergen Community College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The foundation is governed by an independent, community-based board of directors, working closely with the president and trustees of Bergen Community College.

As the primary fundraising institution for the college, we build partnership between Bergen and the community to help advance strategic priorities that advance Bergen’s strategic plan for creating transformative student learning experiences and building on its greatest strengths and areas of greatest potential impact.

With today’s public funding limitations, only a combination of good management and philanthropy will allow the best public colleges to succeed.

We need you – Bergen’s partners, faculty and alumni – to invest in the future of the college and to maintain the excellence that this community requires.  Our success has never been so important.
