This is why

If you could improve someone’s life, would you?

When you give to the TRC Foundation, you are supporting the entire Three Rivers community.  Many of our students go on to four-year universities, others become employed as engineers, nurses or other successful careers. Some students move on as paid interns or apprentices with local employers.

You can put your gift to work right away by endowing a scholarship that will be invested to ensure that there will be opportunities for students of the future or give an unrestricted gift to help support our cultural and fine arts programs, state-of-the-art equipment for a myriad of programs and majors.


The Foundation is an important resource for the College, soliciting and accepting gifts to support the educational needs of its students, faculty, staff and community.  Our goal is to grow our annual appeal and increase our endowment. With decreased state and federal funding, gifts large and small have helped us grow our assets to more than $6 million.

Annual Scholarships & Awards

Minimum donation of $250: These gifts are designated for a wide variety of college scholarships, awards, programmatic enhancements, tutoring support, etc. and funnel through this program.

Endowed Scholarships

Minimum donation $15,000. These gifts are invested and the earnings is used for a defined purpose. Endowed gifts permanently provide funds to support their objectives. Help us grow out endowment!

Unrestricted Gifts

Gifts of any size allows the Foundation to help meet current and unexpected needs of students and the College

Gifts can be made in honor or in memory. Discuss your interest with the Advancement Office about other ways you would like to help Three Rivers.


Our distinguished and talented Faculty and Staff are supported with professional development opportunities throughout the year.

Gifts from our alumni, foundations and community partners support “Request for Funds” that improve the learning environment with program enhancements, state-of-the-art equipment, lectures and motivational speakers free of charge for our students and local community.

Gifts large and small add up!
