RCA'S SUSTAINING CORPORATE SPONSORS
Donate to RCA
Individual Sustaining Donations
You can make a difference in how quickly we progress with our many initiatives for young people, young wireless professionals and those in established careers. We encourage any member who is impressed with the operations of the club to make a tax-deductible donation earmarked to sustaining operations. Donations to support our day-to-day operations are critical to our future as an organization.
You can also select RCA as your full or partial beneficiary on an IRA, so funds are tax-free to RCA, or set up a monthly donation through a credit card or ACH withdrawal.
Individual or Corporate Endowments
An endowment is a donation of money or property to a non-profit organization, which uses the resulting investment income for a specific purpose. Endowments are designed to keep the principal amount intact while using the investment income for the non-profit’s activities. The RCA Scholarship Program is one example of endowed funds used for the specific purpose of providing monies to university students. Contact our Executive Secretary, Amy Beckham, for more information (email email@example.com.)
