Time is running out if you want to be a part of Roanoke Rising this fiscal year.

Join Roanoke College’s many supporters by making a gift to the College on or before June 30, which is the end of Roanoke’s fiscal year.  Your gift can be made online or with your mobile phone.  If you give with a check, make sure that the outgoing envelope is postmarked by June 30.

You can decide the area in which your gift will be used. For example, gifts to the Roanoke Fund support the College’s most critical daily needs. These may include funding financial aid packages, buying books for the library, enhancing technology and campus infrastructure and more.

Your gift also can support specific programs and activities, such as student scholarships or the Maroon Club, which supports athletics.

If you are a Roanoke graduate, your gift is doubly important. In addition to helping the College with its annual fund raising goal of $2.2 million, your gift will count towards Roanoke’s alumni participation goal of 23 percent.

Alumni participation rates are critically important to Roanoke as corporate and foundation grants look at alumni participation to determine funding awards.

Your gift, whether it is $5, $50 or $500, helps Roanoke on many levels.

Give today and make a difference.
