Thank you for considering a gift to the
Rossmoor Scholarship Foundation!
We rely on the generosity of our Rossmoor community to fund our scholarships. We couldn’t operate without your large and small gifts. Our scholarships are primarily funded in two ways.
1. ANNUAL GIFTS
We raise funds each year to give deserving students a chance to attend college with scholarships of $3,000 or more. We welcome your gift today! To make a gift, please press DONATE. You may instead simply send a check to Rossmoor Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 2056, Walnut Creek, CA 94595.
We also have an endowment, funded largely by bequests. Over more than 50 years, our endowment has grown to $1.7 million in 2020. From our endowment, we withdraw roughly 3.5 – 4.5% each year. That amount is joined with the annual gifts to fund the current year’s scholarships.
Our new Legacy Society recognizes those who have decided to leave the Rossmoor Scholarship Foundation a gift in their wills. To learn more about how to leave a bequest for us, please press BEQUESTS. To learn how to join and to see a list of current members of our Legacy Society, press LEGACY SOCIETY.

YOUR GIFTS ARE TAX DEDUCTABLE. We are a 501(c) (3) charity and your gifts are therefore tax deductible.
