About Berkeley College Foundation

The mission of the Berkeley College Foundation (BCF) is to provide support and resources to students pursuing quality experiences in higher education. Scholarships are awarded to current and prospective students to help defray the cost of tuition and to enhance participation in educational enrichment activities. The Foundation also awards grants to other worthy educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. In addition, the BCF launched an on-campus food pantry at our Newark and New York City campuses, establishing a much-needed resource to address the growing economic and food insecurity challenge in higher education. We also provide a subsidized MetroCard program.

Based in New Jersey, the charitable organization received 501(c) 3 status in 2015.
