Events and Photos

The Annual “Seaside Splash” Fundraiser debuted in 2005 and has grown to become the premier fundraising event for the KCC Foundation. Each year, our supporters enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres served on our beautiful beach patio and dinner and dancing held in the magnificent KCC Rotunda, surrounded by beautiful ocean views.  Funds raised from Seaside Splash are used to support the Foundation as it strives to advance the college’s mission of providing high quality education and continuous improvement in all areas related to student learning including faculty, instructional programs, student services, administrative and support staff, and the campus environment. 

On Thursday, June 23rd, we held Kingsborough Community College’s 11th Annual Seaside Splash Fundraiser…Seaside Splash Clambake Bash. 
Over three hundred guests attended this year’s fundraiser where many of the College’s community supporters and donors, Foundation Board trustees, KCC faculty, staff and student-scholars celebrated Kingsborough’s commitment to providing an affordable, high-quality and transformational education. 
We are already planning for the 12th Annual Seaside Splash, and we look forward to seeing you there!

KCC Walk-A-Thon: The Stride to Provide
The Walk-A-Thon is a way for KCC students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends of KCC, family and community members to come together and support KCC scholarships. With 40 Walk-A-Thon teams across campus, each led by a team captain, there is a friendly competition for the highest fundraising team. The competition culminates with a Walk-A-Thon Celebration in which all teams come together in solidarity to show their support of the college and student scholarships.

The cost of participation is a $10 donation per walker, and a total of $100 (or 10 walkers) is needed to establish a "team". You can raise additional funds via sponsorship, fundraising, or by simply making an additional donation to this worthwhile cause.  To learn more, contact Alexandra Berkley at Alexandra.Berkley@kbcc.cuny.edu or 718-368-5433

Faculty Achievements Recognition Ceremony

At the annual Faculty Recognition Ceremony, Kingsborough faculty and staff are recognized for their achievements in the areas of grants received, publications and presentations, works of art or literature produced, and more.  The recent 6th annual celebration included a college-wide recognition of faculty and staff’s work and a retrospective exhibit of faculty and staff over the past 50 years. The quality of teaching and services that students at KCC receive is only as great as the quality of our faculty and staff - and as in previous years, the list of honorees told a story of achievement that could only translate into powerful outcomes for our students.
