RRCC Foundation :: Make a Donation

The important work of the Red Rocks Community College Foundation wouldn't be possible without the generosity of the many individual and business supporters who make annual donations to the Foundation.

Your donation can be made to a specific area such as scholarships, teaching chair awards, or the Arvada campus expansion project or you can choose to direct your donation to the unrestricted Fund for Excellence, which funds a variety of needs at the college.

Establish a named Endowment Fund
The RRCC Foundation creates permanently invested named endowment funds starting at $10,000. The income generated by that investment is used for the purpose you wish to support. A portion of the income is reinvested each year, enabling the endowment to grow and provide a permanent stream of income over time.

Join the Legacy Society
The Legacy Society recognizes those donors who have included the RRCC Foundation in their estate plans. By doing this, they are able to create a lasting legacy to illustrate the power of changing lives through education. Legacy gifts often times enable the donor to make a transformational difference to the college and our students. Please contact Ron Slinger, AVP for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director, The RRCC Foundation, at 303.914.6417.

Establish An Endowed Teaching Chair

Teaching Chair donors are recognized in many ways for their generous support of faculty and educational excellence. Donor recognition includes naming rights, permanent recognition on the Teaching Chair wall at the RRCC Lakewood campus, recognition in RRCC publications, and an invitation to the Foundation's annual Donor Appreciation Luncheon. For more information regarding making a donation in support of the Teaching Chair Program, contact Ron Slinger, AVP for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director, The RRCC Foundation, at 303.914.6417.
