For 40 years Rock Valley College has been building our community by providing quality, affordable education, job training skills, personal interest courses, and leisure activities from concerts to international tours. And the college is constructing the future by creating strategic partnerships, developing programs in high demand fields, and helping hard-working people earn a bachelor's degree without leaving home.
The RVC Foundation supports these vital activites by raising funds from private sources. Like the foundation of a building, our support is not always visible but it makes a difference every day. In fact, the foundation has been doing this since 1979 when it was established by community leaders who recognized Rock Valley College's valuable role in providing higher education at the regional level. The RVC Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation, and donations are tax-deductible.
