In December 2015, Rockford University and the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois (CFNIL) announced the University’s participation in the Rubin Education Challenge, a challenge grant offered by CFNIL to build scholarship endowments benefiting local students with financial need who attend college in the region. Together, Rockford University and CFNIL will build a $3 million endowment, with CFNIL matching every dollar contributed by the University and its donors. The program is named after Dr. Louis and Violet Rubin whose $24.5 million gift to CFNIL made the matching endowments possible.
On April 26, 2017 Rockford University is hosting its third annual Day of Giving. All gifts will be matched and will support students who live and learn in the area.
We encourage you to follow our friends and partners at Rockford University and its campaign to learn more about how the Day of Giving will have an impact on RU students for generations. #WeAreReady2017
