RACF Raises $318 Thousand in 2023

We are pleased to report that the RACF raised $318 thousand in 2023. A heartfelt thanks to the more than 250 donors that made our 2023 results possible. Your generosity is building RACF financial reserves while simultaneously supporting scholarships, facilities and programs/activities on an annual basis.

The SCC has now raised $1.747 million towards a goal of $2 million with two years to go (2024, and 2025). A major objective of the SCC is expanding and strengthening the RACF donor base. To better recognize its past and future donors, the RACF Board has established the following permanent giving clubs and we are pleased to report 2023 membership.
