For the seventh year in a row,
the faculty and staff of Blue Ridge Community College
exceeded their donations given in the previous year's
Faculty and Staff Campaign!
In 2012-2013, $30,000.72 was raised by our very generous employees. By making a gift to Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation, you will be taking an extra step that further helps us realize the College’s vision of providing programs of excellence in academics and training that foster economic vitality in our community.
Brian Johnson and Amy Williford, 2012-2013 Faculty and Staff Campaign chairs
I give to the Foundation because I can see the positive impact it has, helping students achieve their dreams.
From my desk, I watch students every day working so hard to make a better life for themselves and their family. I also see faculty members stretching every penny to give students the best education possible. Money is tight these days for everybody. By doing my part and donating to the BRCC Educational Foundation, I feel my gift helped open a door for someone who will benefit for a lifetime.
My donation is not huge, definitely within my means, but when combined with others', I know it will have a huge impact.
