This year, Desert Community Foundation was brought in to administer the fund. They have been managing scholarship programs for private country clubs for more than 20 years, providing an advisory committee that often includes local educators, administrators and college specialists. BBC is proud to align itself with the Desert Community Foundation in order to take the fund to the next level. 


As always, our students and our committee thank you for your continued support. Your efforts have truly made a significant difference in the lives of our students and their families. Thank you in advance for supporting our scholarship efforts this year. Your support is crucial to employees and their dependents.
