Rochester Area Community Foundation

Among the largest of 770 community foundations nationwide, Rochester Area Community Foundation invests in our eight-county region to make it a better and more equitable place to live, work, and play — for everyone. Since its founding, the Community Foundation has distributed more than $615 million in grants and scholarships. For ROC the Day 2022, all contributions to the Community Foundation will be split between the Racial Equity and Social Justice Fund and the Education Fund. These two endowed funds allow the Foundation to use its expertise to support the organizations and projects that will have the greatest impact on racial equity throughout the region and closing academic achievement and opportunity gaps, with emphasis on children living in the City of Rochester. Investing with your Community Foundation gives you an important role in creating and sustaining more equitable and vital communities across our region by taking charge of change.
