Total Given So Far: $1,935
Ever wish you could have a pot of money to pull from whenever you wanted to do some good in the world? Or perhaps need a little push of your own to jump start a philanthropic idea or project close to your heart?
Welcome to the Rockstar Community Fund (RCF), a project of RockstarFinance.com, where we pool together funds and then go out and do good in our community every single month :) Or more specifically, help you to go out and do good.
We make it possible through the following three initiatives:
- The #GivingCards Project — This is our flagship project where we hand out $20 VISA cards every month to those who will use them to create unexpected joy for someone else. You can see all the incredible (and creative!) ways our community has used them here.
- #DebtDrop — We also keep our eyes open for those struggling hard with debt, and then surprise them with a no-strings-attached $50 to help them pay some of it off. We know it doesn’t fix everything, but we like to think it gives them a little hope for the day and reminds them that they’re not alone.
- Just-In-Time Giving Pot — This is a stash of money we set aside to be able to quickly assist anyone in our community when an unforeseen situation occurs, like an illness, injury, sudden loss, or any other unexpected life event. It allows us to help right away!
And this is just the beginning! We launched the RCF in late December of 2016 and are looking to expand our initiatives with each passing month. If you have an idea for a project of your own you need help getting out the door, or something already working well that you’d like amplified, please let us know. We think of this as our “incubator of good”, and want to make the RCF as beneficial as it can be for everyone!
Thanks for being here :)
