International Tea & Tablescapes Fundraiser

On Sunday, March 3rd, RCF, Inc. hosted an International Tea and Tablescapes fundraiser in Zeeland, MI.  Board member, Amy Devanney, chaired the event.  The goal of the event was to raise awareness and funds for the Foundation while giving guests the opportunity to learn more about the different countries represented.
Friends of RCF, who have a connection with the countries represented, decorated individual tables that included personal collectibles, photos, information on customs and lifestyle, china, table linens and centerpieces.  Native foods, sweets, and treats from each of the countries were available for guests to sample.
A variety of countries including Sweden, Ukraine, China, Chile, The Netherlands, Senegal, Israel and more were represented.  Amy Devanney, who taught English in China for one summer, decorated a table from China.  Many who live in the Zeeland/Holland area of Michigan have Dutch roots so of course there was a Dutch Table displayed by Dutch Village of Holland, MI.
In addition, RefuTea, a loose leaf tea company in Grand Rapids that supports refugees was serving tea that was available for purchase.  Corporate sponsors of the event were:  Apache Logistics, Innotec, and Country Club Landscapes.  
Along with taking a global stroll in the historic Colonial Clock Building, visitors were able to talk, in real time, via Skype, with our Director of Redeemer Christian School.  Guests were able to ask questions about the lives the children lead in this country in the Middle East.  


Redeemer Christian School, supported by RCF, Inc., provides a free, Christian education to orphaned and impoverished children.  A BIG thanks to all who volunteered, displayed, sponsored, and visited this event.

1st Annual RCF Golf Outing Fundraiser a Huge Success!

A big thank you to Board member, Gregg Oonk (the essence of enthusiasm), who, with the help of Amy Devanney (also on our Board), and a planning committee brought together the community of Holland, MI to raise close to $3,500. for the children that RCF, Inc. supports. Praise!!

The event which took place at the West Ottawa Golf Club had sponsors for every hole providing food, fun, and giveaways. Sunny, blue skies prevailed as guy and gal golfers teed off at 1 pm. Sept. 14th. If you look at the photos, smiles were seen all around as everyone agreed it was a great day out for a GREAT CAUSE!!

Local restaurants, artisans, and businesses provided AMAZING prizes that were raffled off. Everything from massages, to hand-crafted jewelry, to restaurant gift certificates, video gaming equipment, flat screen t.v., bird houses, grill and accessories, a lawnmower, and a custom electric guitar...WOW!!

Other donations are coming in from those who couldn't play but wanted to let the kids know they are loved.  If you missed out - it's never too late to give :)

The children learn from their teachers that Jesus loves them, but ON SEPTEMBER 14TH THESE GOOD FOLKS WERE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS....BIG TIME!!

With 20 new children added to the school, proceeds will go toward increasing the budget for daily meals, textbooks and school supplies, additional desk chairs, and Monthly Park/Sports days so the children can get out of the slums and enjoy the green grass we take for granted.

To everyone who participated, YOU nailed it! We can't thank you enough for all you've done. The children are blown away by your generosity and caring....Amazing what can happen when a caring community comes together!

May you all be blessed abundantly!

Redeemer Christian School to Expand....Sponsors Needed

The children of RCS  prayed that God would make a way to expand their school so that others, orphaned like themselves, would be able to attend their school.  God heard their prayers and answered in a big way.  The goal was 10k.....at this writing YOU have raised over  $13,000 !    PRAISE!!

What was amazing was HOW you did it.  Some big hearts from the big state of Texas held a "Backyard Gathering" with a farm to table dinner, live band, raffle, and photo booth and raised $4,700.  Others gave of their business profits and that was everything from knitting blankets, to landscaping, to playing the organ, to self designed coloring books, to yoga studio owner.  Others mailed letters to friends and family.  One loyal supporter donated all her tooth fairy money to the cause.  Through YOU, God made it happen.

So what now?  WE DESPERATELY NEED SPONSORS FOR 20+ CHILDREN WHO WANT TO COME OFF THE WAITING LIST.  Just $15/mo or $180/year will provide them with a backpack, text books and learning materials, a Bible, a nourishing meal every day (usually) the only meal they get, and medical aid, and hope.  Every dime you donate goes to your child.

If you haven't made a gift lately, the money raised gets us in the door of a larger facility, but we still need:

  1. A generator because power is not dependable in this region.
  2. Another teacher's pay
  3. Increased utilities coverage
  4. A computer and computer station
  5. A water cooler with sanitary water
  6. A teacher desk, additional carpets, fans, propane heaters, dishes
  7. ASSISTANCE WITH ONGOING COSTS TO RUN A SCHOOL GOING FORWARD into 2018.

** All gifts will receive a tax receipt.  Be sure to include mailing address.**

Send a check payable to RCF, Inc., Send to:  103 Silver Lining Lane, Cary, NC  27513  or Go to our "Donate" page on this website and follow prompts.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO!!
