The mission and purpose of Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation is to aid, strengthen, and further in every proper and useful way the work and services of Blue Ridge Community College and to provide broader educational opportunities to its students, staff, faculty, and to the residents of Henderson and Transylvania Counties.
Grant funding from Lake Toxaway Charities will aid in replenishing and continue funding of Blue Ridge Community College’s Student Emergency Fund. This is a
recently established fund that addresses emergency financial needs beyond the traditional cost of community college. Types of emergencies recipients of funds have experienced include illness (especially due to COVID-19), lack of childcare, major auto repairs, and job loss. With BRCC’s enrollment for the 21/22 academic year increasing over 10%, there is an increase in needs to help students outside the classroom.
