About RVC Foundation

Funding Priorities

Rock Valley College is state-assisted not state supported. Your generous gifts help the Rock Valley College Foundation to:

  • Provide scholarships to deserving students. Students who could not afford to attend school or purchase textbooks are in class because of foundation scholarships. These scholarships are for students in credit, and selected non-credit and workforce development programs. 
  • Maintain academic excellence by supporting faculty development and leadership opportunities. 
  • Purchase state-of-the-art instructional equipment and supplies. Music labs, the library, science labs, and many classrooms all have equipment purchased with foundation funding. 
  • Support activities that complement the college's educational offerings, enhance the experience of current students, and bring new students to campus. Recent activities have included the 2013 David H. Caskey Memorial Lecture:The Global Water Crisis– Coming to our Great Lakes , ALAS Leadership Development, PAIC Multicultural Curriculum Transformation Academy and Flamenco A3 dance performance and clinics. 
  • Respond to special and unpredicted needs of the college through the general endowment fund. 
  • Enhance campus facilities to expand existing programs, broaden regional cultural offerings, and build educational partnerships that will positively impact the regional workforce. 
  • Beautify RVC's main campus which consists of 217 picturesque acres through donations to a campus beautification program.


Gifts to the RVC Foundation may take several forms:

  • Current gifts of cash, securities, or other personal or real property.
  •  Deferred gifts by wills, life insurance policies, or transfer by or through trusts.
