financing.jpgRUF as a 100% pass-through entity exists mainly because a small number of dedicated people underwrite all operational and fundraising costs: our Members, our Founding Angels, and our Main Sponsor. Our 5-year plan assumes no individual will represent more than 10% of the sources of operational revenues.

This is your opportunity to become part of a special community of monthly donors who are committed to helping RUF further its mission in connecting the Romanian communities all over the world. A recurring donation as small as 25$ per household ($10 per person) can make a significant difference.

For RUF to become a truly independent and effective institution, it needs to be able to stand on its own. Your monthly gift ensures a predictable form of income to cover the organization’s operational expenses. You can change or cancel your pledge at any time. Ready to commit to more?
