Fundraising
Fundraising by the RCO is a critical part of Ridgeline’s continued success. Last year, the RCO raised over $34,000 that went directly to the General Fund to pay for equipment, supplies and instruction. This year, The Ridgeline Community faces the additional opportunity and challenge of raising the money required to purchase its own school. To help us better achieve these goals, please answer the following questions.
