Rotary Club handing big check to Foundation

$25,000 Endowment Ignites Hope for Front Range Community College Students.

The Rotary Club of Northglenn-Thornton has announced the establishment of a $25,000 endowment at Front Range Community College. This fund will support students from the Northglenn and Thornton areas who are pursuing certificates or degrees at the college and enhance the area’s future workforce.

The scholarship, administered by the FRCC Foundation, is designed to assist students who demonstrate significant financial need and meet up to 250% of Pell Grant eligibility. Preference will be given to residents of Northglenn or Thornton. However, the Rotary Club has committed to considering applicants from outside these areas on a case-by-case basis to ensure all deserving students have the opportunity to benefit from this initiative.

“The Rotary Club of Northglenn-Thornton is deeply invested in the future of our community and workforce, and we believe that education is a key pillar of personal and professional success,” said Debbie Tuttle, Board Member of the Rotary Club of Northglenn-Thornton. “This endowment is a testament to the Club’s commitment to helping local students achieve their educational goals with a smaller financial burden.”

Rotary Club members pose with the big check.

Applications for the scholarship are open from December 1 – March 1, and the selection process will be overseen by the FRCC Foundation. The scholarship will be awarded annually to one or more students based on fund availability and the applicant’s demonstrated need.

“We are grateful for the generosity of the Rotary Club of Northglenn-Thornton,” Beryl Durazo, Executive Director of the FRCC Foundation & Community Partnerships. “Their support not only provides financial assistance but also motivates our students to strive for excellence in their academic and professional endeavors.”
