Who we are and what we do

Bellingham Technical College Foundation was established in 1987 as a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation. We began with just a handful of board members, dedicated to student success. Since then, the foundation has helped thousands of students achieve their career goals through education. Since hiring our first staff members in 1997, the Foundation has played an increasing role in supporting BTC’s pursuit of larger organizational goals.

Our mission

The Bellingham Technical College Foundation changes lives by expanding access to quality education.

Helping us achieve our mission

We are grateful for the record number of Endowment gifts that we have received this year. Each of these groups understand the impact of leaving a legacy. Thank you to:
