Bucks County Community College Bucks County Community College is committed to the concept that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to develop his or her greatest potential. To that end, the College provides a high quality, affordable first two years of higher education. Our open door policy encourages all who wish to obtain an education to do so. The College is reflective of the society it serves. What was once a small college of 730 students in the fall of 1965, is today an institution of nearly 10,000 credit and 20,000 non-credit students. In its history, more than one million students have attended the College to take courses for transfer, occupational skills, advancement and enrichment. The programs, courses, services, and activities it provides, touch the lives of many residents and create an environment which encourages life-long intellectual development for county residents. Those who attended the College over the past 50 years – legislators, commissioners, teachers, doctors, lawyers, and business owners – continue to contribute to the success of Bucks County. Building Strong Communities Together

Bucks County Community College Foundation In 1982, the Foundation was established as a non-profit, 501(c)(3), educational trust to provide expanded resources for the College’s growth and development. Foundation funds support instructional resources, campus facilities, scholarships and awards, cultural activities, and special College projects. In its quest to advance Bucks County Community College as a community of excellence, the Foundation proactively approaches the private sector of the Bucks County community to secure financial support and other assistance. This community support enhances the College’s ongoing activities and programs as well as initiates new services and programs not adequately funded through traditional sources. In addition to soliciting and receiving funds and other gifts on behalf of the College, the Foundation raises community awareness through its special events, such as the annual Tyler Tasting Party, Golf Classic and Women’s Scholarship Tea.

The Bucks County Commissioners Advisory Council on Women is proud to support the Bucks County Community College and the Bucks County Opportunity Council. We value their support of students in the Gateway to Economic SelfSufficiency program.

Miss Winpenny’s will said a lot about her. What does your will say about you? In 2005, Miss Elizabeth Winpenny, the first director of the nursing program at Bucks, made a donation to start a scholarship fund for nursing students. Although she died in 2006, she lives forever because of a gift to Bucks she included in her will to allow the scholarship to continue. Since its creation, the Elizabeth V. Winpenny Nursing Scholarship has helped 12 nursing students attend Bucks. Past recipients, many who have gone on to receive their RN, are making our world a better place and caring for those who need it most. For more information on how simple it is to create your legacy at Bucks and continue supporting students for decades to come without it costing you anything during your lifetime, call Jenny Salisbury at 215.968.8461 or email at
