A group of ROCORI leaders initiated plans to find a partner to develop a charitable foundation for their community in 2011 and formed an official partnership with the Central Minnesota Community in 2012.

The Rocori Area Community Foundation offers a wide variety of community foundation services to donors, professional advisors, and nonprofits in the Rocori area. In addition to a general fund to support grantmaking in the Rockville, Cold Spring, and Richmond area, RACF provides a variety of fund options, from donor directed and donor advised funds to nonprofit agency endowments.

Our Mission

Our Vision

  • Assist where the needs are greatest and the benefits to all Rocori area residents will be substantial.
  • Provide charitable donors a vehicle to utilize gifting options that work now and in the future to insure maximum benefit to both donor and the Rocori area.
  • Provide excellent stewardship of the gifts received.
