Our Mission, Our History & Our Future

To support and advance learning for all students in the Rochester Community Schools by obtaining contributions for academics, arts, and athletics.

The RCS Foundation was established in 1995. Since its inception, the RCS Foundation has raised more than $10 million in contributions from individuals, organizations, businesses, and other foundations. Twice a year, the RCS Foundation Board Review Committee meets, reviews and approves grant distributions to support the work of the Rochester Community School District teachers and staff.

The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is independent from Rochester Community Schools. The Foundation works in partnership with the school district to support educational programs that are above and beyond what the district could otherwise provide. The Foundation allows the community, organizations, businesses, individuals and other foundations to support an outstanding education program in spite of state funding pressures.
