The BCCC Foundation and Baltimore City Community College hosts a variety of events and activities where we offer opportunities for our friends and businesses to interact, celebrate, and make a collective impact through sponsorships and partnerships.
The foundation relies on the generosity of sponsors and partners to assure success of these events. The foundation looks forward to working with you to create a comprehensive benefits package in an effort to meet your own unique objectives. Your sponsorship will help make a difference to the education of our community.
For more information regarding event sponsorships and partnerships, please contact the BCCC Foundation Office at 410-462-8328.
The BCCC Foundation values the partnerships and sponsorships it enjoys with businesses and corporations who serve the Baltimore metropolitan area and beyond. Understanding potential for support and growth, BCCC seeks to foster relationships with corporations that will further each other’s missions.
Corporations support BCCC in a number of ways: they provide scholarships to BCCC students and athletes, donate gifts in kind to projects such as the financial literacy project, match their employee’s gifts to BCCC, and sponsor various BCCC events and programs on and off campus.
But adding value to who we are, what we do, and where we want to go is only one half of the corporate equation. The other is providing practical ways of giving back to our community partners and advancing their corporate identity and activities that benefit our community.
We invite our local corporations and business community to come see our campuses and centers and learn more about how we can help each other to enhance our missions. From the Life Science Institute at the UM BioPark to the Maryland Center for Construction Technology, BCCC is there for business.
The Baltimore City Community College Foundation has received a grant from the Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation to jump-start the foundation's fund raising capacity. Wachovia presented a $5,000 award to the BCCC Foundation Tuesday, June 22 in a ceremony at the college's Board of Trustees meeting. The unrestricted contribution resulted from a proposal the BCCC Foundation submitted this spring to the Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation in its Funds for Excellence competition.
In its proposal, the foundation cited the need for unrestricted dollars that would enable the foundation to enhance the capability of its fund raising computer systems to improve donor search and planned giving systems on the BCCC Foundation's new website at www.bcccfoundation.org.
"Wachovia and Wells Fargo have delivered valuable resources for us at a critical time as the economy improves and people and businesses are poised to make donations," said Jim Chitwood, director of development for the foundation. "This grant lets us move forward in "Building a Foundation of Futures" by acquiring donors who can provide funds for scholarships and other program improvements at BCCC."
"At Wachovia and Wells Fargo, we believe that access to education is critical to creating strong communities. It prepares our workforce for successful careers, and community colleges are an important part of the education network," said Andy Bertamini, Wachovia/Wells Fargo regional president for Baltimore. "We're proud to support BCCC's efforts to increase fundraising and provide affordable access to education to more Baltimore residents."
Gregory T. Finnegan, chair of the BCCC Foundation board, said: "This grant could not have come at a more opportune time for the Foundation since it will truly strengthen our fund raising capacity through the installation of new software. And it enables us to take the College's and Foundation's message to more donors."
The BCCC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 1984 for the single purpose of financially supporting the college by increasing private contributions from individuals, organizations and businesses. Donations are used to provide scholarship assistance for students, instructional and program enhancements, and acquisition of equipment.
