Student Support Fund Named for Herbert Kurz

Ramapo, NY— A special fund to support disadvantaged students at Rockland Community College was renamed the Herbert Kurz President’s Student Support Fund by the College’s Board of Trustees on November 19, 2014. Mr. Kurz, a businessman, philanthropist and major benefactor for RCC since 2010, died on November 24.

Through the Kurz Family Foundation, Herbert Kurz and his wife Edythe, who died in 2010, supported a wide range of causes in the arts, health care, social justice, and education.

The Kurz’s generous gifts to Rockland Community College provided financial assistance to numerous students who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to pursue higher education. The Student Support Fund assists students struggling to cover the costs of tuition, textbooks, lab fees, child care and other educational expenses.

The Kurz family has designated the Herb Kurz President’s Student Support Fund at RCC for memorial donations. Donations can be made online at: .
