Rochester Community Schools Foundation Mission Statement

To support and advance learning for all students by

obtaining contributions for academics, arts, and athletics.


"Your gift can be the promise for their bright future."



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 approves grant distributions to support the work of the Rochester Community School District teachers and staff.  


Your support of the Foundation makes a difference in the lives of Rochester Community Schools students. Donors may designate contributions to benefit a specific fund, program or school, or may wish to make an undesignated contribution to support the mission of the Foundation. You may donate online, by phone, or by mail.

For additional information, please call the Foundation office at 248.726.3190 or send email to lgrein@rochester.k12.mi.us.
