RCS Scholarship Foundation
The Roseville Community Schools Scholarship Foundation began with a dream and a goal when it was established by the Roseville Kiwanis Club in 1963. The dream was to touch the lives of Roseville’s young people; the goal was to raise funds to aid them in their continued educational quests.
In 1984, the Roseville Board of Education joined the the ongoing project. Today, citizen volunteers, educators, business representatives, and local leaders assist in the process of raising funds and allocating scholarships to deserving recipients. This year, we awarded 55 $1200 scholarships to recipients.
In April 2022, the Foundation officially became a 501c3 organization. This allows additional opportunities to receive donations from individuals and companies wishing to donate to a charitable organization. If you own, work for, or know of a company looking for a charitable organization to donate to, we would greatly appreciate you sharing the Roseville Community Schools Scholarship Foundation name with them.
RCSSF Tax ID No: 87-1665026
Funds for scholarships are raised through memorial and honorary donations, membership dues, the annual dinner dance, golf outing and the Joe Manfreda Dream Dash 5K event.
The scholarships process is designed to help graduating seniors of Roseville Community Schools who express an interest in higher learning. Potential candidates must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0. Applications are available in the Roseville High School Counseling Office throughout the year and must be returned by the specified due date. The application must include letters of recommendations and the student’s personal statement. Awards are presented on a one-time basis. The identity of an applicant is anonymous during the selection process. Financial need is considered in the event of a tie-breaking situation. Scholarships are presented to the student after documentation of enrollment is submitted.
The annual RCS Scholarship Foundation's 2024 Winter Gala will be held on Saturday, March 9. Please see the flyer below and the attachments for more information.
Tickets for the Gala can be purchased via RevTrak (see link below) or by sending payment to Administration Building, Attn: Teresa Tomala.
We are always looking for donations for baskets, door prizes, as well as sponsorships if you know of any businesses that would be interested (see link below.)
Once again, the basket raffle will be sold virtually in addition to at the Gala. We will share information on purchasing raffle basket tickets as the time gets closer. Hope to see you for this fun night for an awesome cause!
