The SBCC Foundation relies on private support from people like you to provide life-changing opportunities for students in our community from all walks of life. Whether gaining a fresh start, discovering a new talent, achieving an important academic goal, or launching a new career, thousands of lives are changed for the better through an education at SBCC. For many, assistance from the SBCC Foundation is crucial. Thousands of students benefit each year from scholarships, the SBCC Promise, internships, emergency grants, learning programs, and more. All of this is made possible by the generosity of our community of donors.

The SBCC Promise provides access to an outstanding and affordable education at SBCC for all local high school graduates, covering all direct educational costs – tuition, fees, and all required books and supplies – for two years.

Student support programs help traditionally under-resourced and underprepared students – such as single parents and first-generation students – make a smooth transition to SBCC and succeed in college and life.

Over a million dollars in scholarships and book grants are awarded annually to students, based on academic achievement and/or need. This assistance allows students to focus on their coursework by covering costs they may not be able to afford.
