The Foundation of a Successful Community

If you live in Rock or Green County, chances are you cross paths daily with one of over 16,000 recent BTC graduates, apprentices and certificate holders. Blackhawk alumni are the nurses, cops, plant technicians, construction professionals and small business owners who keep south-central Wisconsin vital and growing.

State and federal resources help make this happen, but it’s not enough. State allocations only partially meet budget requirements, and have decreased significantly over the past 20 years; and federal financial aid usually covers only a small portion of each student’s financial needs.

Without support from neighbors like you, many Blackhawk students would be unable to achieve their educational goals.

The Foundation exists to enable community support of the college. Through the BTC Foundation, you can help provide student assistance through grants and scholarships, as well as through investment in facilities and resources that enable student success.

Since 1978, over 3,200 individuals have achieved their educational goals thanks, in part, to Foundation scholarships. This year alone, the BTC Foundation will award over 100 scholarships. Unfortunately, the number of applicants in need is always greater than the Foundation’s ability to help.

Many citizens in south-central Wisconsin communities believe the Blackhawk Technical College Foundation is an excellent way for private citizens, business and industry, and other organizations to help their community’s college through tax-deductible contributions of:

  • Gifts for scholarships and/or the endowment
  • Gifts for capital building campaigns
  • Donations of equipment, supplies, property, or real estate
  • Legacy gifts

Please consider a contribution to help us close this gap.

For more information, or to pledge your support, please contact the Foundation at (608) 757-7704 or donate safely and quickly online.

The Blackhawk Technical College Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that receives, holds, and disburses funds for the betterment of the college and its students. The BTC Foundation is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

BTC is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action educator/employer.
