Now through November 21, the RTN GoodWorks Foundation is holding a 50/50 raffle for Credit Union members, select employer groups, community residents, and staff. Tickets may be purchased at RTN Federal Credit Union branches and are $5 for one and $20 for five. The proceeds will be split into two halves – half to help benefit the Foundation and half to be enjoyed by a lucky winner.
RTN established the Foundation to help the Credit Union support and expand its financial literacy and community involvement activities. RTN GoodWorks Foundation is funded through fundraising events, appeals to membership, and community partners.
We think the raffle is a fun way to get members involved in raising funds for the Foundation. We look forward to getting involved with more projects to support our surrounding communities, with the goal of increasing access to financial education and promoting life-long financial well-being.
Earlier this year, the Foundation was a Gold Sponsor of RTN’s Walk Home 2015 5K Walk for the Homeless. This fall, the Foundation sponsored two financial seminars – “Money Smart,” on September 19 at RTN’s Waltham branch, and “Basics of Money Management for Teens,” held on October 3 at the Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA) Office in Dorchester.
