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 $4.5 million.

Annual Foundation Events – Another way to give
Each year, we hold two major fundraisers — our Golf Tournament and an evening dedicated to celebrating a person or event associated with Three Rivers. They’re a great way to have fun, meet the movers and shakers of the community, and support Three Rivers, all at the same time. Here are some of our past events:
Three Rivers College Foundation Golf Classic
The 21st Annual Three Rivers College Foundation Golf Classic is September 17, 2018 at Fox Hopyard in East Haddam, Conn. The Golf Classic has raised nearly $1M over the past two decades to fund $410,000 in annual student scholarships, books, lab equipment and so much more.
Last year, the Foundation funded a summer pilot scholarship program to aid over 70 students on the path to graduation. The program was an incredible success with 91% of those students completing their courses, 86% registered for classes in the fall and 47% of that summer cohort graduates this May 2018.
A Dream Realized – an Evening Honoring Dr. Grace Sawyer Jones
On March 10, 2017, this exclusive evening honored TRCC’s President Emerita Grace Sawyer Jones with the naming of the Dr. Grace Sawyer Jones Lecture Hall. In addition, the evening included a Silent Auction of student artwork, a social hour and dinner.
