Supporting Nonprofits

In 2014, 3RCF granted $237,627 to 57 local nonprofits.  A large portion of the grant funding was made possible by distributing earnings from donor endowed funds.  With an endowed fund you can permanently support the nonprofits you care about most, and annual contributions will be made to them now and into the future.  The process is easy.

We are proud to support the efforts of Domestic Violence Services and specifically the HEART (Healing, Empowerment, Art & Recovery Together) program. It is a weekly art-based support group that uses art to explore dealing with emotions, understanding self, overcoming trauma and loss, developing skills for healthy self-care, embracing joy and happiness, and showing & growing attitude.  Learn more about DVS & view more artwork created by HEART Program participants
