When you give to Rochester Christian University, you help us continue fulfilling our mission of preparing students of personal and professional success as they serve in God’s world. Get started creating your legacy at Rochester Christian University by learning about the different gift options available to you. We will work with you to find a charitable plan that lets you support for RCU. These are a few areas where philanthropic support is needed most.

Opportunities for Supporting RCU

Student Scholarship Fund

RCU is growing and developing new programs every academic year. In addition to raising funds for such initiatives, the university must raise supplemental funding for annual operational costs. The student scholarship fund provides scholarships, library resources, technology, faculty and staff salaries, academic programs and alumni activities.

Shinsky Athletic Complex

 Finishing our sports complex in Phase II of the “Rise Together. Stand Apart.” campaign will reinforce our strong belief that incredible RCU victories lie ahead.

Estate Planning

You can partner with Rochester Christian University through a number of estate planning methods including wills, bequests, charitable gift annuities, IRA rollovers, charitable trusts and more. When you include RCU in your will or estate, you become a member of the Heritage Society and leave a lasting legacy on the Warrior community.

Endowed Scholarships

Named endowed scholarship opportunities begin at $10,000. These scholarships are normally named for the donor, but can also be named in honor of another individual. Founders of endowed scholarships are invited to annual scholarship events to meet their scholarship recipients. Contact the Development & Alumni Relations Office at 248-218-2021 or for more information.

Memorial & Honor Gifts

Many friends and alumni remember loved ones through memorial and honor gifts. Such gifts can be designated for a specific purpose or can be donated to meet student scholarship needs within the university. The family of the honored is notified of the gift.
