About the Blinn College Foundation
Message from the Executive Director
The Blinn College Foundation was set up to serve as a separate 501(c)(3) organization to support Blinn College. Its mission is organized for the sole purpose of providing financial support for programs and activities that enhance the quality of education for Blinn College students and expand the educational opportunities for the entire community. The Blinn College Foundation supports the college by generating private and corporate gifts for scholarships, academic programs, student activities, campus building and special events. For many students, the Blinn College Foundation makes education a reality. For the faculty and staff, it means improved educational tools for the classroom, for the public it means an investment in our community’s future. Through the funds donated, students who may not have an option for college are given that hope…that option to pursue their dream.
Thank you for your Support!
