About BAC Scholarship Fund

Founded in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, the Bulldog Alumni Community (BAC) Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that combines the efforts of ordinary people to make an EXTRAORDINARY difference in the lives of the children and the communities we serve!

 

With the support of selfless individuals and organizations, we change the lives of deserving children through mentorship and scholarship ---which empowers our future leaders to success!

OUR VISION

“WE ENVISION A WORLD WHERE ALL CHILDREN HAVE THE RESOURCES REQUIRED TO SHARE THEIR LIGHT WITH THE WORLD --- ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.”

"BAC SCHOLARSHIP FUND PROVIDES NETWORKS AND MENTORS FOR LIFE!"

OUR MISSION

THE BAC SCHOLARSHIP FUND'S MISSION IS TO MAXIMIZE COMMUNITY RESOURCES AND CLOSE THE OPPORTUNITY GAP THAT TOO MANY OF RICHMOND'S YOUNG PEOPLE FACE.

 

WE ACCOMPLISH THIS THROUGH PROGRAMS THAT ENRICH CHILDREN'S EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES, EMPOWER THEM TO ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND PREPARE THEM TO COMPETE IN TODAY'S GLOBAL ECONOMY!

OUR IMPACT

THE BAC SCHOLARSHIP FUND CREATES A LASTING CHANGE IN THE LIVES OF OUR SCHOLARS, THEIR FAMILIES, THEIR SCHOOLS AND THEIR COMMUNITIES.

 

SCHOLARS

 

BAC SCHOLARS GO ON TO COLLEGE EMPOWERED BY THE FACT THAT HUNDREDS --- IF NOT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE BELIEVE IN THEM ENOUGH TO INVEST IN THEIR FUTURES AND SUPPORT THEIR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.

 

THESE ARE THE SAME YOUNG LEADERS WHO WILL SOON BE ACTIVE CITIZENS AND ROLE MODELS IN OUR COMMUNITIES, AFFECTING CHANGE WHEREVER THEIR LIVES MAY LEAD THEM.

 

FAMILIES

 

IN TODAY'S ECONOMY, JOBLESS COLLEGE GRADS ARE A HUGE BURDEN FOR MANY FAMILIES. IN ADDITION TO HELPING FAMILIES  BATTLE THE EVER-RISING COST OF COLLEGE, WE CONNECT SCHOLARS TO PROFESSIONAL MENTORS SO THAT THEY CAN BE BETTER PREPARED TO COMPETE IN TODAY'S GLOBAL ECONOMY AND NOT BE FORCED TO RETURN HOME DUE TO JOBLESSNESS AFTER GRADUATION.

 

SCHOOLS & COMMUNITIES

 

WHEN OUR SCHOLARS GO OFF TO COLLEGE, THEY FORM NEW RELATIONSHIPS AND ALSO MAINTAIN RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS & GRADUATES OF HIGH SCHOOLS BACK HOME. AS SCHOLARS ACHIEVE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, ACQUIRE PROFESSIONAL MENTORS AND GAIN INTERNSHIPS, THEY "RAISE THE BAR" AMONG THEIR PEERS --- WHICH PAVES THE WAY FOR PERPETUAL SUCCESS IN THE COMMUNITY.

 

SUPPORTERS

 

OUR SUPPORTERS REALIZE THAT TODAY'S SCHOLARS WILL BE TOMORROW'S DOCTORS, BUSINESS OWNERS, TEACHERS, LOCAL LEADERS AND POSSIBLY NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBORS!

 

ONCE A PART OF THE BACSF FAMILY, SUPPORTERS CAN ALSO MOBILIZE THEIR NETWORKS AND CIRCLES OF INFLUENCE TO HELP US FURTHER ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION OF CHANGING LIVES AND CREATING OPPORTUNITY!

 

AN INVESTMENT INTO THE FUTURES OF TOMORROW'S LEADERS THROUGH BACSF WILL OFFER ASTRONOMICAL RETURNS FOR YEARS TO COME!
