Welcome from the Foundation Executive Director


Executive Director, Darnell HolopirekWelcome to the Barton Community College Foundation website, we are pleased that you have an interest in our Foundation and the ways in which we assist the college.   Our staff along with our Foundation Board of Directors (15 community volunteers) is happy to share with you the many innovative friend/fundraising ideas and program enhancements that we are fortunate to offer the students we serve. As you peruse our site you will see that we have many different initiatives, events, and activities that allow us to raise community awareness and fundraise to meet our important mission.

The Foundation funds scholarships, provides money for special projects and supports the strategic plan of the College within its mission to serve the community and our wonderful donors. In the past few years it has become essential for the Foundation to compliment the infrastructure of the college by financing facility renovation projects, faculty mini-grants and continually bringing new constituents and partnerships to the college. We strive to serve our internal and external relationships.

We are successful in our quest to accomplish our goals and objectives because of our donors continued generous support. Every day I am fortunate to witness the affect your giving has on our students; from the student pursuing an associate’s degree, transferring to a four year college or returning to Barton after being in the workforce to retrain for a new career. We have an important role in the life of the community and we understand how vital it is to the Foundation’s (and college’s) success.

We have a strong tradition to be good stewards of the gifts that have been bestowed to us and we will continue to appreciate the benefactors that see the value in education and the purpose we serve to make better citizens for the future of our communities.
