    About RKMF



    Remembering Ritt

    The Kellogg family and friends founded the Ritt Kellogg Memorial Fund, in the spirit of Peter Rittenhouse (Ritt) Kellogg Jr. [Colorado College Class of 1990] in the winter of 1993. The mission of the endowment fund is to help Colorado College students promote imagination, challenge and personal growth in their own responsible and conscientious pursuit of wilderness expeditions and education. The mission is perpetuated through outdoor expedition grantseducation grants, environmental service and books donated to the Tutt Library. The Fund additionally supports the Ritt Kellogg Climbing Wall. The Fund is available only to students currently enrolled at Colorado College.

    Since its inauguration, the Ritt Kellogg Memorial Fund has provided 432 students with expedition funding; resulting in 212 successful expeditions and countless life-changing experiences for Colorado College students.
