Annual Fund FAQ

The Annual Fund at Kingsborough Community College

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of giving at Kingsborough. It consists of unrestricted annual gifts to the college from generous alumni, faculty and staff, friends, and businesses.

 Annual giving dollars help bridge the gap between the college’s general operating costs, and the funding that the college receives through tuition and state assistance funds. It provides the financial resources to address student and faculty needs in and out of the classroom. This flexibility is vital to the health of our vibrant college.

All philanthropy efforts at KCC are administered by the Kingsborough Community College Foundation through the Office of Institutional Advancement. The Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization that solicits tax-exempt gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporations to benefit Kingsborough’s students, faculty and operations. The Foundation is governed by an independent Board of Trustees.
