RCIF Funds Humanitarian Aid in
Houston, Texas

The RCI Foundation is proud to support research and education that enhances the building envelope industry, its future leaders, and, in turn, our world as a whole.
Although the Foundation was not founded as a philanthropic organization, the Board of Directors felt the devastation and human suffering caused by Hurricane Harvey created a unique situation for humanitarian need.  Given the current financial status of the Foundation, the board decided it was in a position to help without jeopardizing its mission of education and research in regards to the building envelope.  After consulting with local RCI chapters, the board decided to contribute $30,000 to both the Houston Food Bank and The Salvation Army of Greater Houston. 
  Should you also wish to contribute toward these efforts, please click on the logos below, to be directed to each organization's page.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by
Hurricane Harvey.
