The other side of Rose Community Foundation

The other side of Rose Community Foundation

ROSE COMMUNITY Foundation is known primarily as a grant making organization — the steward of the $170 million in proceeds from the sale of Rose Medical Center in 1995. Indeed over the past 21 years, RCF has granted nearly $240 million to nonprofit organizations serving diverse populations in the areas of aging, child and family development, education, health and Jewish life.

RCF’s grant making represents the value of charitable giving on a large-scale community-wide stage. Over the past decade, RCF has added philanthropic services to its activities. The foundation uses its expertise to help families and individuals act upon their values of charitable giving and philanthropy.

Student of Torah at CU Law's helm
