Scholarship money for collegeOften donors wish to build an endowment and help students right away. Many endowed scholarship sponsors choose to make two gifts each year until the endowment is self-sustaining – one to grow the endowment and the other to be awarded immediately. This solution is a satisfying way to immediately enjoy the benefits of being a scholarship sponsor while building an endowed fund that will support scholarships for generations.

Talk with Foundation staff for more information about the details of how to establish a scholarship or endowment fund. 

A 5% gift fee is assessed on all restricted funds given to the RCC Foundation.
