Honor recognizes FCP’s support of expanding services for students at the Perkasie campus
Bucks County Community College recently dedicated the entrance lobby at its Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, Pa., in honor of Foundations Community Partnership, recognizing the non-profit group’s $10,000 grant for the college’s 2010 campus expansion.
“Foundations Community Partnership is an excellent community partner and strong advocate of Bucks,” said Tobias Bruhn, Executive Director of the BCCC Foundation. “This partnership provides us with the opportunity to expand our services, and ensures that deserving students receive the financial assistance they need to achieve their educational goals.”
In addition to this grant, which will increase youth-based service programs and cultural programming at the Upper Bucks Campus, FCP sponsors an annual $2,500 scholarship for Bucks students enrolled in courses with a service learning, co-op, or internship component.
“We are pleased to be able to support Bucks County Community College’s mission to provide quality and affordable education,” said Ron Bernstein, Executive Director of Foundations Community Partnership. “Our goal as a philanthropic grant-making foundation is to award grants to organizations like Bucks County Community College that are striving to help young people gain the tools they need to succeed.”
