Why Donate to RCC?

Our recent $72.5 million renovation project transformed the campus into an enviable learning environment for RCC students; however, maintaining and updating our facilities is a long-term commitment that is not fully funded by the state.  For example, the recent addition of the Center for Smart Building Technology was made possible almost entirely through grant and private funding.  Generous donations will allow us to continue updating our classrooms to meet or exceed industry standards.  

In any given year, over 60% of RCC students receive PELL grants.  Many RCC students do not qualify for federal funding and are therefore dependent on private scholarships or their income to cover their educational expenses.  Scholarship funding from the RCCF helps our students close the funding gap, minimizing or eliminating any out-of-pocket costs for their education. 
RCC offers educational and recreational programs for local youth and elders.  We’re also committed to expanding our role as a cultural and civic center for Roxbury residents. Donations allow us to increase community programming without using the state and tuition funds required for academic programs.  
Staying nimble and responsive to industry demands means developing new programs quickly, which comes with costs.  Donations from dedicated supporters like you fill the funding gaps, allowing RCC to continue meeting workforce needs.  
All donations (excluding event tickets with sponsorship benefits) are tax-deductible.

“None of my friends at four-year schools have met with the Mayor of Boston, or sat down with the Governor, or attended a board meeting. I get all of these opportunities, a challenging classroom environment, and lots of extracurricular activities for the price of $4,000 a semester. I also feel like my college is my home away from home—I know that everyone in the building is here to support me.”
