Who We Are
The Rockville Centre Education Foundation's mission is to enhance the quality of public education by securing and providing financial resources for school enrichment.
The Foundation fosters innovation in our classrooms—focusing on those programs that reach beyond the normal scope of the curriculum.
The Rockville Centre Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance the quality of public education in our community. The Foundation focuses its energies, time and resources to enhance the education of our village’s most valuable resource: its children.
Established in 1991, the Foundation is a tax-exempt, independent, non-profit organization. Through the efforts of its volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation funds special projects that district teachers and school administrators propose to expand the horizons of their students’ classroom experience in our local public schools.
What We Do
Everything the Foundation does supports our mission to provide unique, creative and challenging learning opportunities for Rockville Centre students in grades K-12. Through the monies raised at its Annual Gala, the Foundation provides grants for our teachers that contribute directly to student motivation and learning. These grants are awarded annually through a rigorous review process.
Why We Matter
There has never been a more critical time to support our schools. With less and less financial support from our state and local governments, we must ensure our children continue to receive the quality education that has been a hallmark of the RVC Community. Through the efforts of the RVC Foundation, financial grants are awarded to our teachers and our school administrators to help ensure that our students are prepared to take on the global challenges that lie ahead.
