Throughout the year RCC holds fundraisers for various nonprofit organizations. Our main beneficiary is Corazon de Vida (CDV), a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting over 10 Mexican orphanages maintain their facilities and fund each child's education. Each spring quarter our members visit a Mexican orphanage supported by Corazon de Vida and have a chance to see the difference the funds can make. In addition, during the last week of the quarter we raise funds for our parent organization, the American Red Cross.
For Fall 2020, we will be using the free trivia platform freerice.com to donate rice to families in need through the World Food Programme. Each correct question answered donates 5 grains of rice. For every 500 grains of rice donated, we will award you 1 point towards Active Membership. A total of 6,000 grains of rice, or 12 points of fundraising, will be required to attain Active Membership. The max points that can be applied towards Active Membership is 15 points, which is equivalent to 7,500 grains of rice donated.

More info coming soon!
To track fundraising for Active Membership, please refer to https://tinyurl.com/RCC-ActiveMembershipDoc. The deadline to have your last screenshot uploaded to your doc will be Week 9 Wednesday at 11:59 pm. The points for fundraising will be updated after this deadline.
We are continuing to raise money during this quarter for Corzon de Vida, Working Wardrobes, and the American Red Cross Association through donations via our Venmo! To learn more, visit our Fundraising Challenges page.
INDIVIDUAL FREERICE COMPETITION
This will depend on the individual's grains earned for their family Freerice page.
The top 4 winners of the Freerice competition will have a certain amount of points added to their own individual average.
1st place: +10 points
2nd place: +7 points
3rd place: +5 points
4th place: +3 points
Example: If Victor won 1st place and he has 60 points, he will get an extra 10 points. This makes his total points 70 points. This will only apply to general members.
FAMILY FREERICE COMPETITION
We will calculate the total amount of points each family made, which includes both general and board members.
The family who gets the top points will receive:
1st place: +3 points
2nd place: +2 points
3rd place: +1 points
4th place: +0.5 points
These points will be added to family average points, not their individual points.
While board members cannot be a part of the individual Freerice competition, their grains raised will still contribute to their family's total score.
BINGO CARD FUNDRAISING
Board members will be posting their fundraising bingo cards on their personal social media accounts, and they will be linking their personal Venmo accounts. As people donate, board members will be marking off the bingo card with the corresponding donation slot. Once a row or column (or the whole thing!) is filled out, then that board member will have to complete a certain challenge, a video of which will then be posted on their social media and the RCC website! Check out the Fundraising Challenges page for more information!
CDV FUNDRAISING GOAL
Our goal this year is raising $500 for Corazon de Vida to help Mexican orphanages better serve their children. Throughout each quarter RCC will be fundraising towards this goal. We can’t wait to see if we can reach it with your help!
Our CDV thermometer exceeded our goal of $3,000 during 2019-2020 at $3,864 raised!
Thermometer was last updated 9/17/2020!
THOMAS HOUSE SHELTER SLOMJOM STICKER FUNRDAISING
For the month of October, we will be fundraising with special-edition RCC stickers!
Half of the proceeds made through sticker sales for the month of October will be donated to us, which we will then donate the money to Thomas House Shelter.
We're officially trying to match the thermometer goal! We get about $1.50 per sticker, so if we're able to sell 100 stickers we would be able to match the $150 thermometer goal for THS!
