The RCCD Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1975 to raise and manage private donations that benefit RCCD and its colleges, students, and programs. We accomplish this by building partnerships with alumni, friends, and the business community to explore philanthropic opportunities and inspire giving.
The Foundation is professionally managed by a staff who are experts in the field of philanthropy and is overseen by a committed volunteer Board of Directors.
