Areas of Support
Unrestricted Funds: Funds that are not specifically designated to particular uses by the donor.
Endowed Scholarships: Scholarships that memorialize and honor loved ones and special friends while supporting students who could not otherwise attend Robeson. There are several designated endowed scholarships already established with the Foundation that may be of interest to you.
Annual Scholarships: Annual scholarships are named in honor of individuals, families, organizations, clubs, student organizations, and many other entities. There are several annual scholarships that may be of interest to you.
Student Relief Fund: These funds provide students in immediate need, for things like emergency travel expenses, or replacement costs for essential academic supplies or personal items.
Program Funds: These funds are tax-deductible but can’t benefit a donor or specific individuals. These funds will ONLY cover expenses within a department, club, or organization that support the institution’s mission (according to U.S. Internal Revenue Service regulations).
Gifts-in-kind – Gifts-in-kind are items of tangible personal property or other physical assets including artwork, books, equipment, specialized instruments, services and other items of value.
Real Estate – Gifts of real property, including land, farms, personal residences, and rental or commercial property, can benefit the college while providing relief from capital gains taxes and eliminating property expenses.
Planned gifts can be a significant benefit to you, your family, and RCC. There are many types of planned giving, and the type of gift that is best for you depends on your needs and expectations. We encourage you to talk with your financial advisor, family, and the college about options available to you. Examples of planned giving include:
Bequests and Wills – The simplest way to make a planned gift is by naming the RCC Foundation in your will as the recipient of a particular percentage of your estate’s value, a specific dollar amount, or a specific item of real property. A bequest is a meaningful way to support the college without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime. A bequest gift to the RCC Foundation is easy to make with an attorney’s help.
Retirement Account or Life Insurance –You can also make the RCC Foundation the beneficiary of a retirement account or a paid-up life insurance policy. The disposition of these kinds of accounts usually depends upon the beneficiary instructions you have designated on the account, not instructions in your will.
The Robeson Community College Commemorative Rose Garden Walkway gives you an opportunity to pave the way for future generations of students. We invite you to become a permanent part of our RCC environment by purchasing a stepping stone for yourself, your family, your business or in honor or memory of someone who has been important in your life.
Each stone features two lines of engraving for an investment of $250.00 per stone. An additional fee of $5.00 will be charged for a third line.
