The following guidelines define our company’s charitable contribution process.
RCN's company-wide contribution efforts reflect our goal to play an active role in the communities that we serve. Providing support to non-profit organizations within our service territories is one way that RCN works towards that goal.
Learn more about our contribution criteria
Unfortunately, RCN cannot meet every request for support that we receive; therefore, we have developed contribution criteria and procedures designed to establish Company priorities for giving. RCN only considers requests from organizations that primarily serve the communities where we have operations. In addition to monetary contributions, RCN provides in-kind donations and encourages all of its employees to actively participate in community affairs.
Donation Application Procedures
RCN welcomes requests for support throughout the year consistent with the guidelines set forth below. We do not consider multi-year requests for support. There is no donation application form. Requests must be submitted in writing and include the required information.
What information is required in the donation application?
The following information must be included in your request:
Review and Evaluation of Donation Requests
Requests and supporting materials are carefully reviewed. If available funds permit consideration of request, the organization may be asked to provide more complete information before a decision is made.
Notification of donation request approval or rejection will be made in writing within 6-8 weeks of receipt of all materials. We do not respond to telephone or email follow-ups.
Since RCN receives funding requests far in excess of its annual donation program, we must unfortunately decline support to many worthy organizations and programs.
