RENTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION


CELEBRATES ITS 15TH ANNIVERSARY!

 

About this time in 1999, the Renton Chamber Foundation became the Renton Community Foundation. RCF startd with just 2 funds and approximately $257,000. Today, the foundation manages 48 individual charitable funds and almost $8 million! Here's a list of just some of our accomplishments since that humble beginning:


  • RCF has disbursed more than $5 million back to the community to do great things.

  • In just the last four years, we have awarded over $85,000 in scholarships to help students pursue their dreams.

  • We helped to launch the Friends of Renton Schools, which has raised over $500,000 to support academic achievement within the Renton School District.

  • RCF also helped to launch The Next Curve, which is working hard to cultivate the next generation of community leaders.

  • We extended our tax umbrella over Renton's Unleashed Furry Friends (RUFF) so donors could receive a tax deduction and volunteers could build Renton's first off-leash dog park.

  • Our Circle of Giving program has distributed over $350,000 in operating funds to local nonprofits and individual teachers in the school district.

  • RCF has provided networking, professional education, and support to help stregthen our local nonprofit community.

  • And, we have made a positive impact throughout Renton and the entire Puget Sound area through grants to the IKEA Performing Arts Center, Renton History Museum, Renton Senior Activity Center, the new Meadow Crest Playground, senior emergency pet care, recreational services for low-income and the disabled, and scores of smaller grants to help teachers in the classroom, promote the arts, put food on the table for the homeless, and help keep kids in school.

 

BUT WE'RE JUST GETTING STARTED!
