Creating opportunities for Black Hawk College East Campus students
Scholarships do amazing things for everyone involved. As a donor, you create a lasting legacy that can honor a family member, a friend or colleague. It's a wonderful way to honor someone important in your own life—while concurrently benefiting someone you have yet to meet.
Create a legacy with a lifetime of benefits
Scholarships provide important support to students with financial needs, yet they also do so much more. A recipient of a scholarship will gain more than you might imagine. And perhaps more important than the financial assistance, recipients build their self-esteem through knowing someone believes in them. As we have seen, recipients are likely to achieve greater success in their studies and ultimately in their personal and professional endeavors.
A win-win situation. Imagine having such an amazing impact on the lives of others. Its an outstanding way to honor someone, while truly helping a student in need and/or those who have demonstrated exceptional academic performance.
Simply determine the type of scholarship you would like to establish, and we will help you create criteria for your scholarship.

Create an Endowed Scholarship
A lasting tribute in honor or in memory of loved ones. For organizations, it’s an opportunity to provide perpetual support for BHC East Campus students. When an individual or organization establishes an endowed scholarship, the gift is set aside as the principal is invested in perpetuity. Only the income from the principal is distributed as a scholarship award. An endowed scholarship typically consists of a minimum first-time gift of $10,000. The larger the principal, the greater the number of scholarships the foundation can award.
Create an Annual Scholarship
Established as a short-term, renewable gift. When a donor establishes an annual scholarship, the entire gift is awarded to students. (We request that annual scholarships be $500 or more per academic year).
