Mission

Renaissance Charitable Foundation grew out of the need to find a better way to promote the general concept of philanthropy to individuals and organizations and to increase the efforts of those already active in philanthropy. RCF assists donors in the furtherance of charitable causes dear to their hearts. RCF accepts gifts to a general account and also offers to establish sub-accounts for individual donors, over which such donors will be given the opportunity to offer non-binding charitable distribution advice and recommendations regarding the selection of investment managers.
