Economic Self-Sufficiency Endowment

In 2019, BCOC established the Economic Self-Sufficiency Endowment with the Bucks County Foundation. The goal of the ES Endowment is to provide revenue for the Economic Self-Sufficiency program while growing the principal.

Gifts to the Endowment can be made directly to the Bucks County Foundation or to BCOC. Please make sure any gifts for the endowment are clearly identified.

Gateway Scholarship

BCOC in partnership with Bucks County Community College Foundation started the Gateway Scholarship Fund.  

Funds are contributed directly to Bucks County Community College and restricted to Opportunity Council Economic Self-Sufficiency participants. You could sponsor one student each year or multiple students, depending on the curriculum (two-year degree or certificate program).

Average commitment is $4,000 to $12,000 over a three year period.
