Rowan-Cabarrus Endowed Funds

I believe in what the College accomplishes in our region. -Ed Brown

Major gifts of $15,000 and more given in perpetuity, as memorials or tributes to individuals, by family and friends or by corporations or associations. Such gifts are payable as a one-time donation or over five years. The principal is never spent. Endowed funds are invested with interest spent in accord with the policies of the Foundation, which are available upon request but are subject to change as dictated by market and economic conditions. All endowed funds are recognized through creation of a portrait of the individual for whom the fund is named, an individual brochure and a place on the RCCC Foundation Donor Wall. Each year endowment donors are invited to our Changing Lives Scholarship Luncheon.
