Annual Fund

A fundraiser for Goldey-Beacom College

$6,286 raised from 30 donors

$50,000 goal

Over the past 50 years in Pike Creek (137 years total!), Goldey-Beacom College has provided an educational foundation to thousands of students, some of whom came back for a second (or third!) degree. We have graduated students who went on to be business and community leaders, bank vice presidents, counselors, accountants, HR professionals, IT leaders, and entrepreneurs. We have been there to help those students gain knowledge, navigate difficult times, and celebrate their joyful moments. And we hope you will continue to do so. As we enter our next 50 years in Pike Creek, we are committed to continuing to serve those who need us most:  our students.

And that's where we need your help.
 
Previous support over the years has been crucial to our success, and we are asking you to continue that support into our next 50 years. Your gift will play a vital role in ensuring that our legacy of providing world-class education, life skills, and community leaders continues to flourish.
  
We know that together we can make a difference. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our move to Pike Creek, we are reminded of the power of inspiring one’s dream. Prior generations of GBC leadership laid the foundation for today’s success: we have been recognized as a College of Distinction, as a top institution for helping students to achieve economic and social mobility and ranked as a top institution in the U.S. News and World Report rankings. GBC dared to dream and look at what we achieved! As we look to the future, we see new challenges and opportunities ahead, and we know that we cannot meet them alone. We need the continued support of our community, including our alumni, donors, and friends, to help us achieve our goals and ensure that our legacy of excellence continues for generations to come.
