The President’s Circle (previously the Visionaries Circle) makes the SBCC Foundation’s work possible. Members provide the core support, through an annual gift of unrestricted funds, that enables the foundation to raise the dollars necessary to ensure that SBCC remains an extraordinary institution of higher learning with opportunity for all.

In the 2017-2018 fiscal year, every dollar donated to the President’s Circle generated more than $10 for SBCC and its students, ultimately providing $4.5 million in support to benefit students through the SBCC Promise, scholarships and book grants, tutoring, childcare assistance, disability services and programs, student support programs, and lifelong learning opportunities.

By investing in the SBCC Foundation as a President’s Circle member, you ensure that SBCC students have the tools they need to reach their goals while being part of a dynamic group that believes in the power of education to transform lives and communities.
