Operating Endowments

The RDC Foundation has long used endowments to support the sustainability of our scholarships program. We combine donations of all sizes in a secure investment strategy, and fund scholarships with the generated income.

A similar strategy can support the sustainability of our program development and offset operating costs. By creating operating endowments, we can ensure the sustainability of program development and empower our seven Schools and RDC Athletics to upgrade and acquire the equipment and resources they need to provide the best experience for our learners and support their success.

When you give to Red Deer College, you support innovation, excellence and sustainability. Your gift today will empower our College to provide the student funding, program development, equipment and resources our learners need to succeed in their courses and careers. Give to the area that means the most to you, and help RDC students reach their highest potential.
