RCC is a division of Valley Community Fund.Org Inc. is an IRS approved public 501(c)(3) charity. The purpose of RCC is to increase charitable giving to Rotary Clubs projects on a federal income tax deductible basis. Contributions are made to RCC, which accounts for all contributions on a project and donor basis which is an approved 501(c)(3) public charity. RCC then gifts those contributions, net of expenses to the managing Rotary club for the specific projects
RCC intends to be almost entirely internet based and to use internet based communications, due diligence, accounting and gifting procedures to increase efficiency of operations and gift a higher proportion of contributions to charities than united ways. We expect to reach many more donors and be much more efficient than other well-known community fundraisers. See FAQs
Any charity, service organization or individual can initiate a campaign for a charitable or service cause. RCC operates very much like United Ways’ in accepting proposals, contributions and transfers to supported charities. START A CAMPAIGN
RCC credentializes the proposed purpose and recipient. We arrange with the recipient for posting the campaign, use of trademarks, logos and photos, campaign design and editing services, use of funds as proposed in the campaign, secure funds transfer protocols, fees and other matters. These procedures assure that contributions are deductible.
We ask for donations as part of each supporting action to cover our costs, currently estimated at about fifteen percent of contributions. As is common practice, and as allowed by law, RCC expenses of operation are deducted from contributions.
A volunteer board sets policies and monitors compliance.
