BMCC Bookstore is institutionally owned

What does this mean?

  1. Non-profit – Revenue is not paid to staff or shareholders in anyway.
  2. Any Net Earnings are both transferred to other General Fund programs and set aside for Bookstore infrastructure improvements.
  3. Net earning losses are paid for by the institution
  4. Self-supporting – Funding by revenue generated by sales – nothing comes from the General Fund unless the Bookstore operates at a loss.
