Coastal Bend College

The latest official news from CBC!


The Coastal Bend College Foundation (CBCF) is proud to announce the inaugural Day of Giving initiative, a fundraising campaign aimed at celebrating the founding of the college and helping fund scholarships for students at Coastal Bend College.

Coastal Bend College will celebrate the 57th anniversary of its founding, which was formalized on Nov. 2, 1965, when voters in Bee County approved a ballot measure that established a junior college district in the county.

“We are proud to launch the Day of Giving initiative here at Coastal Bend College and are certainly hopeful that our supporters will help us celebrate the college’s birthday,” said Coastal Bend College President Dr. Justin Hoggard. “This is a great way for all of our alumni and friends to help support our current and future students.”

To celebrate the anniversary, the CBCF is asking all alumni and friends of Coastal Bend College and Bee County College, the college’s original name, to donate $57 on Nov. 2 or any time throughout the month of November.

All donation amounts will be accepted during the initiative. Click here to donate.

Donations will be accepted online at coastalbend.edu/dayofgiving, or can be dropped at the foundation office on the college’s Beeville campus, located at 3800 Charco Rd., Beeville, TX 78102.

All donations from the initiative will be placed into the foundation’s general scholarship fund, which is used for a variety of scholarships offered through the foundation.

All donations made to the Day of Giving initiative through the Coastal Bend College Foundation will be fully tax deductible.
