Question: What is the “magic” of Rose Valley?
Answer: Ask a newcomer and they might say that it was a combination of the quality of the neighborhood, the sense of community, the natural beauty, the central location, the walking paths, the friendly neighbors, or the many acres of forested lands. Ask a long-time resident why they have stayed here and you might hear them say that it has been because of the unique extras that mattered like membership in the Rose Valley Folk, the Rose Valley Swimming Pool, the Hedgerow Theatre or the Theatre Guild, the walking paths, the patriotic Fourth of July celebration, the Gardeners of Rose Valley, the Environmental Action Committee, the holiday decorations, the Town Watch, the Historic District, the Valley Voices, the Folk Variety Show, and so forth. These are some of the important elements that create the magic of Rose Valley.
Question: How can I help preserve the magic?
Answer: Time, talent and treasure. You can give back to your community by joining our group of dedicated volunteers, through your leadership, ideas, connections and donations. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation. Your support will help ensure the uniqueness of Rose Valley is secure for generations to come! To donate go to Ways To Give.
Question: How is the RVCF organized and how does it function?
Answer: The RVCF is led by a Board of Directors that operates under IRS and Pennsylvania nonprofit corporations that are recognized as 501(c)(3) public charities. http://www.charities.pa.gov/. The Foundation is entirely funded by charitable donations from our residents and other supporters. The RVCF board bylaws guide the conduct and charitable activities which provide benefit to the community. Transparency, fiscal responsibility and sound governance are embedded in the key principle of how the Foundation operates.
Question: We have several other non-profit organizations in Rose Valley. Why do we need another one?
Answer: The Foundation fills a gap and provides benefit to the community in a different way because RVCF is not singularly focused. The Foundation will consider supporting existing charitable organizations as well as fund other charitable initiatives on a case-by-case basis. RVCF is committed to preserving our unique heritage and all the magic that Rose Valley offers.
