Since 1970 the Rockingham Community College Foundation has been helping Rockingham Community College train and educate the citizens of Rockingham County and beyond. Through generous contributions from individuals and corporations, we are able to provide scholarships for our students, professional development opportunities for our faculty and staff and improvements to our equipment and facilities.
Donations to the RCC Foundation are tax-deductible, and you may give in a variety of ways, including online donations. You may also designate how the funds are to be used or give an unrestricted gift.
You can also help the RCC Foundation by participating in one of our annual events:

An evening of recognition was held on October 6, 2016 at the Pennrose Park Country Club in Reidsville, North Carolina. This year the Foundation honored Mr. Charles R. Wharton and Mrs. Cythia S. Wharton with the "Friends of RCC" award. Mr. and Mrs. Butch Trent, owners of B&S of Reidsville, were recognized with the Small Business Benefactor Award. Mr. Montgomery Davis accepted the Corporate Benefactor award on behalf of Duke Energy. Each fall the Foundation recognizes and honors those who have gone above and beyond to serve the college. The theme for this year's gala was "50 Years of RCC: Yesterday and Today." The evening began with a social hour at 6:00 p.m., dinner at 7:00 p.m., followed by the presentation of awards, and an exciting wrap up raffle and live auction. We would like to thank our gracious donors for their support of this important event.
Since 1989 the RCC Foundation has held a benefit golf tournament to fund scholarships, work-study jobs, student aid grants and a host of other projects and programs that tuition and tax dollars do not cover.
