3RCF’s 2021 Grantmaking included a wide range of activity, including:
“2021 was a busy year by any standard,” says Abbey Cameron, Executive Director. “We were able to utilize our experience in grantmaking to funnel support where it was needed most, sometimes very quickly! We couldn’t do this without our donors. We are fortunate to work with individuals and couples from across our community who are charitably-minded and we treasure the opportunity to get to know them and help them achieve their charitable goals.”
3RCF offers a variety of philanthropic options to donors large and small including pooling individual donations to create a larger impact, creating an endowed fund to support perpetual gifts or scholarships, or facilitating anonymous or complex gifts.
