Ways to Give
The FRCC Foundation relies on the generosity of its donors to fund our scholarships. There are many ways to become a donor.
The Annual Fund combines gifts from alumni, friends and businesses to create the best educational opportunities possible for the greatest number of students. As a first priority, the Annual Fund directly expands our scholarship efforts. In addition, these gifts are available to support faculty resources and enrichment, academic programs, campus enhancement, and allow FRCC to respond to unique opportunities. Gifts large and small are welcome.
We offer scholarships in nearly every field of study and for traditional and non-traditional students.
Annual Scholarship Funds
Gifts of any size can be added to one of our existing annual scholarship funds. These scholarships can be need-based or merit-based.
Area of Study Scholarship
Gifts of $500 or more can be designated to a specific area of study. Should any funds remain in a given area once its scholarship needs have been fully met, these funds may be released to support scholarship recipients in other areas.
Named Annual Scholarship
A gift of $1,500 or more can be designated to a named scholarship chosen by the donor. A gift of $3,000 will fully fund a student’s one year tuition. A gift of $6,000 will fully fund a student’s two-year commitment to FRCC.
Named Endowed Scholarship
A gift of $75,000 or more can permanently endow a named scholarship.
Gifts to the endowment remain permanently invested. Annual earnings are used to support the educational objectives of Front Range Community College, which can include investments in curriculum, infrastructure, faculty, and student assistance.
A strong endowment can provide a measure of financial stability during economic downturns, ensuring longer-term health for the College. Establishing and strengthening the endowment represents a recent commitment by FRCC. Our current endowment is modest, standing at $450,000. We have established a near-term goal to increase this amount to $1 million.
Over time, we expect the endowment to increase through additional contributions and investment performance. Endowment gifts can be made during life or through one’s estate.
Kenneth and Dorothy Beil Society
Many people like knowing their gift will continue to support FRCC in perpetuity, especially when considering an estate gift. We established the Kenneth and Dorothy Beil Society to honor those who remember the College in their estate plans. If appropriate, please consider an estate gift to FRCC. Your support can strengthen the College in permanent ways.
