This is why

If you could improve someone’s life, would you? By donating to the Three Rivers College Foundation, you contribute to the entire CT State Three Rivers community. Our students pursue diverse paths, from continuing to four-year universities to thriving careers as engineers, nurses, and more. Some even secure paid internships or apprenticeships with local employers.


The Foundation plays a crucial role for the College, actively seeking and accepting donations to fund scholarships and educational opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and Three Rivers community. Our goal is to expand our annual appeal and strengthen our endowment. Your contributions have been instrumental in growing our assets to over $6 million.
