About Our Cause

All proceeds from this golf tournament will benefit students and provide scholarships at the Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies (BICS). BICS is a one-year college-level program for young adults located in Lenox, MA. For more than three decades, BICS has served over 400 students – seeking to equip them with a biblical worldview. 

Because our students cannot receive federal financial aid, they rely heavily on assistance through our DiscipleBuilder Scholarship Fund. The proceeds of this tournament will help to provide much-needed financial assistance to our students. 

If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone (413-637-4673). 

You can make a donation or a payment using the link below. Or, checks can be made out to “BICS” and mailed to PO Box 1888 Lenox, MA 01240.
