Foundation Invests in Bunker Hill Community College’s Early College Program

June 26th, 2018

The Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation is pleased to announce its lead gift of over $2 million to help Bunker Hill Community College and its high school and nonprofit partners deliver high-quality Early College to students and young adults in Metro Boston. This strategic investment compliments the Foundation’s earlier investment in Lawrence High School’s Early College and Career Pathways programs with Northern Essex Community College and Merrimack College. In Fall 2018, nearly 1,000 students will enroll in these programs. Early College promises to improve post-secondary success, especially for first-generation college-goers, by increasing college readiness, accelerating time to completion, and reducing cost. These investments are closely aligned with the Massachusetts Early College Initiative.
