Mission Statement

The Brunswick Community College Foundation, organized in 1982, is a charitable organization 501(c)(3) instituted to enhance the mission of Brunswick Community College to a level of excellence and purpose for students and the community. The Foundation is a vital resource for the acceptance and solicitation of all gifts for the continued growth and progress of Brunswick Community College. The Foundation enables the college to meet a number of diverse needs that could not be achieved solely with state funding.

Through advocacy, influence and financial support these leaders ensure the commitment to the community college philosophy. They support the mission and enhance the goals and lives of the students. The Foundation is governed by more than 20 board members and volunteer directors as well as honorary, ex-officio directors. The college president and other key administrators also serve. Because of the Foundation's structure, friends and alumni are also involved in fundraising initiatives and asset management programs.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Brunswick Community College Foundation aims to accomplish and/or support academic excellence and innovation, lifelong learning, establish a positive learning environment, emphasize multicultural experiences and assist in College growth and expansion.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Using the fundraising pyramid we first create initial contact with our donors and start cultivation of the prospective donors by creating awareness of the organizations by doing presentations to civic groups, churches and other organizations. Moving on the second tier of the strategy we engage them with events such as our donor scholar luncheon and the community luncheon. We later raise the level of participation/engagement with the Foundation by seeking their annual commitment though affinity groups such as Women in Philanthropy, Medical Mentoring Group or the annual appeal. Following the process we have implemented, we move to major gifts and planned giving. Although the steps are part of our strategies it is important to note we follow a donor's passion for their giving motive and interest in the College.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    With the collaboration of the Foundation staff and the College President as well as the Foundation Board and the Board of Trustees, we are able to reach the members of our community
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Early we have a Board of Directors retreat where we set goals and evaluate prior year's goals. This is directed and executed on the sub-committee level and delivered to the Board at the retreat. Other performance indicators include the success of:
    • Campus Fund Drive
    • Total Funds Raised
    • Scholarships Awarded
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    The Brunswick Community College Foundation has been successful in supporting the College's number one goal by providing scholarships to the students through community supported donations and through endowment funds interest earned.

    On the other hand, it is difficult to obtain support and funds from donors for operating purposes for items not provided to the Foundation by the College. The college supports salaries, equipment,
