BCC Foundation

The Berkshire Community College Foundation is a non-profit corporation established to encourage and receive gifts in support of the mission of the college. Gifts from alumni, students, corporations, friends, faculty and staff are used to further the college's mission. Under the auspices of the BCC Foundation, the office of Development and Alumni Relations works to engage alumni with the college through the BCC Alumni Association.

The Foundation manages an Annual Fund, more than 150 Scholarship Funds, and other funds created to support the college.  In addition, the Foundation owns and operates the building in Great Barrington that provides a permanent site for the college's South County Center.

The Foundation is governed by a board of volunteers from throughout Berkshire County. For more information, contact the Office for Institutional Advancement at (413)236-2185 or by email.

Not your average dog show

The 14th Annual family fun event held on Sunday, February 8, 2015 at BCC's Paterson Field House was another success!  Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, and to all of our human and canine attendees.  Proceeds from the event benefit the BCC Foundation Annual Fund.  Photos.
