BC3 Foundation & Alumni

The BC3 Education Foundation and the Alumni Association work together to create and enhance relationships with the community and former students in an effort to support the College and enhance programs for future generations.



BC3 Pioneer Proud Campaign

In 2013, the BC3 Foundation Board began a comprehensive campaign -the Pioneer Proud Campaign- to increase private support for college initiatives. Co-chaired by Robert L. Hunter and Nancy Hunter Mycka, the Campaign, currently in the quiet phase, has three key initiatives:

  • Transforming the Beck Library into a Learning Commons
  • Sustaining student access and success
  • Supporting economic development

The Pioneer Proud Campaign is built on the 50 year history of the College, contributions to the quality of life and economic vitality of the region. It reflects today’s pioneers who are entrusted with repurposing, rethinking and redesigning education to shape the new era in higher education. For more information on the Pioneer Proud Campaign contact Ruth Purcell, Executive Director of BC3 Education Foundation at or 724-287-8711 ext .8368.



EITC Program

The BC3 Education Foundation, Inc. is an approved Educational Improvement Organization under the state’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.

More than 799 students in five counties in the western Pennsylvania region benefitted from these programs.
