The need is great; the return, even greater

No matter what their background, BTC students have a common goal: to create better lives by achieving their academic goals.

In the past few years, students’ financial hardships have increased, while state funding has substantially decreased. More students than ever are applying for limited scholarship dollars. Last year, the scholarship committee was pleased to award over $250,000 to nearly 200 students.

We can’t do it without you. The BTC Foundation offers several ways to help students through scholarships:

Named Annual Scholarship

Minimum gift: $500 per year

Honor a loved one, establish a legacy or celebrate success. A named annual scholarship creates a personal connection between BTC students and an individual, business, or organization. Donors may specify award criteria to reflect values and objectives.

Endowed Scholarship

Minimum gift: $25,000

Make a lasting difference in the lives of BTC Students. An endowment requires a minimum gift of $25,000, which may be pledged over several years. Created through a bequest, charitable remainder trust, existing life insurance policy, or current gifts, an endowment is the best way to ensure your gift honors your passions and values, and lives on in perpetuity. Each year, 4 percent of the fund balance is awarded to a BTC student, allowing the fund to continue growing.

General Scholarship Fund

Minimum gift: None

This is easiest way to transform a BTC student’s life. Individuals, businesses, and organizations may donate any amount to BTC Foundation’s General Scholarship Endowment or Annual Scholarship funds.
