• A  NEW WAY OF GIVING

    The RACF has initiated a sustaining contribution system that allows for an automatic contribution each month.  Once established the designated amount one chooses will be transferred from your account to the RACF account as a contribution.   To find out more information or to set up a sustaining contribution contact the treasurer at 906-478-4191 or email to spencer4insurance@gmail.com
     
    MANY OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

    Checks, cash contributions, stocks or pledges are always welcome. Other ways of supporting the foundation include memorials, bequests and donations of real or personal property.


    HOW TO MAKE A GIFT

    You may make a gift of any amount to the Foundation. Regardless of its size, your donation will be used for scholarships and to benefit the school and community programs.

    Some donors may make an unrestricted contribution, allowing the trustees of the Foundation to identify the changing needs of the district and direct how the income will be used. Other donors prefer to designate their gift for a certain cause.

    You may mail your contribution to:

    Rudyard Area Community Foundation
    P.O. Box 394
    Rudyard, Michigan 49780

    or call our trustees to arrange an appointment to meet with you to discuss your gift.
