What you
should know

The "RUF Angels" program is available to those few truly special people who really believe in our 100% model, in our mission, and everything RUF represents. The first 100 Angels will be forever named "The Founding Angels".

Angels Benefits

The "Founding Angels" names will be commemorated on a bronze plaque in the RUF Headquarters, and their stories locked for 100 years in a sealed bottle, for generations. For real, we intend to do this, as soon as we have 100 Angels :)

But there are other significant benefits. The "Founding Angels" can nominate their favorite nonprofit organizations and they also vote to select the yearly Flagship organization. They get the pride of being the "founding fathers" of an organization that one day will, hopefully, become the global conduit of Romanian communities worldwide for doing good.

Who are our Angels?

Our Angels are professionals and business people who have made a pledge to support the organization annually. It is simple, RUF exists and can act as a 100% pass-through organization because our Angels exist.

Learn more about our funding sources and see our finances in the Transparency section. Ask us more about this program or the RUF pledge, or see about our Membership program.
