RTN GoodWorks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, public charitable foundation that fosters financial wellness, and promotes financial literacy and community involvement. Founded in 2011, the RTN GoodWorks Foundation is a natural outgrowth of the Credit Union’s commitment to community activities and financial literacy as a key component of financial health efforts.
Giving Tuesday 2019
With community involvement a core value at RTN, every day is a giving day.
In honor of Giving Tuesday 2019, the RTN GoodWorks Foundation made a $500 donation to the Family Health Center of Worcester’s fundraising campaign called Help Us Build a Clinic at the Mustard Seed to Care for People Experiencing Homelessness. This project is raising funds to build out space for increased medical care for the homeless in Worcester.
Las Vegas Fundraising Raffle 2019
RTN member Nora Smith is the winner of the Foundation’s fundraising raffle for a trip to Las Vegas. The prize includes airfare and hotel accommodations in Las Vegas and a $500 RTN Visa Gift Card.
The raffle raised $3,967 in proceeds to help fund the Foundation’s ongoing efforts to support our surrounding communities with the goals of increasing access to financial education and promoting life-long financial well-being.
The work of the Foundation reflects a belief that with access to financial education, there can be a real difference in people’s lives and they can become financially independent.
The Foundation’s activities are focused in communities where RTN’s branches are located. The Foundation disperses funds to organizations not individuals.
RTN GoodWorks Foundation is funded through fundraising events, appeals to membership and community partners.
