Did you know that Families of RAUC raised over $20,000 this year to support student activities and scholarships?

Thank you to all who participated in our Washington D.C. Fundraiser last fall.  We were able to raise $5,300 that will go directly to 8th grade scholarships for their end of year trip.


  • Can you sell the Raspberry Card in late August or September?  This is a discount card offered to local merchants which raises funds for Families of RAUC.  Can you take 5 to sell to your neighbors or get together 2 or 3 families (WITH your middle school kids) to sell them in front of the library or a shopping center?  Contact Lynn Betlock to help with this (lbetlock@yahoo.com).
  • Do you have computer or website skills?  We need someone to learn how our WordPress site works and take over next year (2018-2019) as the current parent who helps us will be moving on to the high school.
  • Do you have graphic art skills?  Ms. Craven is looking for someone to redesign the school logo, incorporating the new core values.
  • Can you write a grant proposal?  There are many grants available to 501(c)3 organizations such as Families of RAUC.  Can you find, one and follow through on the grant writing process for us?  We’ll help you find them if necessary.
  • We value all input and look forward to YOU joining us in the fall to hear our speaker series, come listen and be part of our community and help where or whenever you can, if you can.

Contact Deirdre Logan (deirdre.logan@childrens.harvard.edu) if you’re interested in getting more information or can help with one of the items above.
