Every Dollar Makes a Difference

Workforce education means good-paying jobs, healthy families and a strong community. That’s why the Bellingham Technical College Foundation knows that when it comes to scholarships, every dollar counts. For our students, your gift provides a critical financial lifeline. Tuition costs are rising and many students need to purchase lab equipment—dental hygiene kits or automotive repair tools—that can cost upwards of $8,000.

With broad support from friends and partners just like you, we are able to make great things come alive for our students, our community and our economy.


Pay By Credit Card

We receive approximately 97% of your credit card donation after fees are assessed by the bank. Please consider adding 3% to your gift to help offset this additional cost. To avoid bank fees, we welcome payment by cash or check.


Pay By Cash or Check

When making payment by cash or check be sure to clearly state the purpose of your gift. Please make all checks payable to BTC Foundation and mail your contribution to the following location:


  • Bellingham Technical College Foundation
  • 3028 Lindbergh Avenue
  • Bellingham, WA 98225

Donate Items or Equipment - Gift-in-Kind Donation Form

Many of our programs rely on donations of materials, equipment, vehicles, and more. The Foundation will help you facilitate the donation, but it is up to each program to determine whether your item is useful to them. Please complete the donation form then contact the instructor or the Foundation to get started.

A gift fee from your donation may be used to further the fundraising efforts of the BTC Foundation. Our goal is to be transparent and keep you fully informed, so we invite you to visit the Gift Fee Q & A page to see how your donation is used to support and benefit the students and programs at BTC.
