ROCKFORD PROMISE

What if we could promise every graduate of Rockford Public School District 205 the encouragement, mentorship and financial support necessary to earn a college degree?

Every student would have a path to post-secondary education.

Potential residents would enthusiastically choose our community because of the opportunities for their kids.

Businesses would want to locate here because of the availability of a talented workforce.

That’s the vision of Rockford Promise, a non-profit 501(c)(3) location-based scholarship program modeled after promise programs around the nation.
