The Bates Technical College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to attracting and providing resources through community partnerships to serve the college and its students. A dedicated volunteer board works hard to help students attain their goals. We provide over $75,000 in scholarship support each year to students. Gifts to the foundation also allow us to support programs through mini-grants, capital and equipment funding and emergency scholarships for students in need. Last year, over 94 cents on every dollar raised directly benefited our students and college. The Bates Alumni Association of Bates Technical College is also supported by the foundation.
