COVID-19 Message

As you can imagine, changes are happening rapidly in our community, including on campus at the Bellingham Technical College. Currently, the college has taken steps to ensure the health and safety of our students and employees while maintaining a high standard of learning and equipping students to continue their academic paths toward graduation.

We continue to monitor the situation and will be minimizing the number of staff on campus. For the foreseeable future, many of us will be working remotely. Though, physically, the foundation's doors will be closed, the foundation is not.

For now:

You can still reach us! The foundation staff is working remotely but can be reached by their individual email or phone numbers. Our regular business hours will remain the same: Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm.

Face-to-face meetings. To ensure the safety of all, we’ve cancelled one-on-one meetings. We will, however, do our best to reschedule as phone or video calls.

Supporting our mission

We are still accepting donations during this time. Now more than ever, our students need support to continue their education. Donations can help us provide access to tools, scholarships, and basic needs like food and housing. Your generosity continues to remove barriers to academic success. You can make a gift online by hitting the "Donate Now" button on the right.

Please know that during this time acknowledgement letters may be sent less frequently.

What else? Visit the main BTC home page for additional information on how BTC is responding.

This is a unique situation, unlike anything we have experienced before. In taking these steps, we are doing what we can to take care of others and ourselves by preventing the spread of the virus. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at:

dfulton@btc.edu or (360) 464-3123

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and flexibility.


Dean Fulton, BTC Foundation Director

Supporting Workforce Education & Student Achievement

The mission of the BTC Foundation is to change lives by expanding access to quality education for the students of Bellingham Technical College.

Last year donations to the foundation in were more than $600,000 and we are so grateful because our work would not be possible without your support.  We are also thankful for our Board of Trustees, Foundation Board of Directors, and the faculty and staff who make a difference every day in the lives of our students.
