Advancement/College Foundation

Office of Institutional Advancement

The role of the Office of Institutional Advancement is to advance the College’s mission by building relationships and partnerships that raise philanthropic resources from alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, faculty and staff to support TRCC students and programs.

The Advancement team works closely with the Three Rivers College Foundation Board of Directors, led by area business and civic leaders, to help secure gifts and grants to fund programs that benefit students attending the College.
