About Red River College’s Development Office

Giving to RRC

PattiAs Director of Development at Red River College, I am very proud to be part of a team committed to providing students with quality educational and training opportunities. I am also proud of RRC’s partnerships with individuals and organizations, through which we work together to enhance Manitoba’s economic and social prosperity.

While government grants and tuition fees cover the College’s operating costs, it’s your generosity that directly impacts students — by making their educational goals more accessible and fulfilling.

Please take a few minutes to learn more about giving to RRC and let us know how you would like your gift directed. On behalf of Red River College, thank you for your support.
