FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

We have a great little sewing studio in St. Roch and a storage space in an Algiers warehouse, but these come with rental expenses and utility bills each month. If you donate to us financially, we'll not only use it to help us with these monthly expenses, but also to help us with our 2017 goals…an entrepreneurship program, and new methods to show kids how to re-purpose old threads.

We rely very little on grants, due in part to the cost of grant writing, but also, pending the state of the political climate, we didn’t want our funding to rely on grants.

Your financial donations help us keep the doors open.

Period.

We know you have many choices of wonderful non-profits that need help, and we are honored that you would consider ricRACK!

The quickest and easiest way to send us a financial donation is to hit that exquisite little Paypal button in the bottom right corner or e-mail our captain, Alison, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

ricRACK Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. If you desire a tax deductible receipt for your donation, please let us know.

Making a difference

A boy is walking along the beach when he stumbles across thousands of starfish that have washed up. He starts to pick them up and throw them back in. A man approaches him and says, "Son, don't bother. There are too many. You won't make a difference." The boy picks up another, throws it back in, and says, "I made a difference to that one."--Loren Eiseley
