The Blue Mountain Community College Foundation supports BMCC Students through scholarships, program funding, and classroom equipment.

Make A Donation

Students are First and the heart of our community. In the midst of a pandemic, our state is cutting funding channels, such as the Oregon Promise tuition grant for high school graduates. BMCC Foundation recognizes the financial challenge this places on our students and their educational goals. Students are First with us, and our Foundation has risen to the challenge to meet their needs by providing several options for you to Make a difference
By becoming a donor you are helping students in programs like Diesel Technology. Diesel Technology graduates help your community and you.  How?  These trained graduates help to keep semi-trucks on the road and essential services moving.  This ensures that items like groceries and supplies are still coming to your home, even during times of quarantine.


By becoming a donor today you will be helping BMCC students with supplies, financial assistance, medical costs, and more!
