A number of local nonprofits have found it advantageous to establish a fund with the Renton Community Foundation. Here are a few reasons why this might be a good decision for your organization.


  • If you currently manage a small reserve fund, it may make sense to place it with RCF in order to take advantage of our larger investment pool.

  • The Foundation works hard to promote our funds, giving your organization more visibility not only to Foundation board members, but to the greater philanthropic community through Foundation events and newsletters.

  • You will have access to the expertise and knowledge of our Executive Director.

  • You become part of a greater network of local nonprofits, sharing information and resources, through the Foundation Roundtable.

  • You have access to the Foundation online giving program, which allows you to accept credit card donations.

  • Certain educational and promotional opportunities are made available only to Foundation fund-holders.
