The Sustaining Series

Three Part Fundraiser

The Sustaining Series is a three-part fundraiser with specific requests to maintain and improve RCFL's current programs. From May to July, we will focus on fundraising for our three main goals: Youth Leadership, Attainable Housing, and Workforce Development. Each month will focus on a different program in hopes of attaining our financial goals.

We will ask our supporters for donations that will go towards specific projects, including renovations in the 16-plex apartment building, stipends for our talented young inters to continue their workforce development throughout the school year, and additional bike programming at Venture North to provide more free bikes and services to our community.
