What is the Roanoke Fund?

studentThe Roanoke Fund is our annual fundraising initiative that provides critical funds to support the College’s most immediate needs. The Roanoke Fund relies on the contributions of alumni, parents, friends and even current students, at any level of giving to help make an impact in real-time.

Your annual gift makes the following possible:

  • Strengthen academic programs
  • Scholarships for students
  • Enhance student life
  • Campus infrastructure
  • Recruit and retain renowned faculty
  • Equipment for athletic teams
  • Student research projects
  • Technology in the classrooms
  • Library services

“As a Roanoke College science major, I believe that a first-rate education requires first-rate facilities. Today, Roanoke’s 45-year-old science complex does not reflect the quality science programs housed within. To prepare Roanoke College’s students for a future that will require them to deal with increasingly complex science and technology issues, we need a 21st-century facility with state-of-the art classrooms and laboratories. Future scientists, physicians, teachers and technologists need a facility that supports the education they will require for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities.”
