Our History

The New Brunswick Community College Foundation Inc. - La Fondation du Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick Inc. was established under the province of New Brunswick’s Higher Education Foundation Act on December 28, 2005.  It received designation as a public charitable foundation, effective January 24, 2006 from the Canada Revenue Agency, and was incorporated under the Companies Act of the province of New Brunswick on the 2nd of July, 2013.

As an independent private corporation the Foundation is managed by a Board of Trustees consisting of private individuals with an interest in financially supporting public college students in New Brunswick.

The Foundation has held one major fundraising campaign, which generated a total of $4.5M in donations and matching funds from 2006 to 2011.  The income from the investments has been used to grow the capital, and to produce bursaries.  Together with subsequent donations and matching funds, as well as some of the income generated by the investments, the capital fund stood at $10.1 million at the end of fiscal 2017-2018.
