Butte College Foundation

Our Mission

The mission of the Butte College Foundation is to help ensure the academic development and excellence of students through financial and other forms of support; to establish scholarship programs and services that benefit our students; to constantly evaluate our funding priorities to identify areas critical to our success; and to create fundraising initiatives that will support the programs and services of Butte College.

Incorporated in 1992, the Butte College Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and relies on community donations to help our students succeed as it directly benefits the economic health of Butte and Glenn Counties. Butte College Foundation staff can provide prospective donors with assistance for planned gifts, charitable annuities, and/or scholarships in memory of a loved one.
