Angel Fund Please help us with a donation to the Angel Fund, to help needy children attend the special trips that are coming up in the spring for our students! Nature's Classroom is for all 3rd-6th graders, and is a fabulous experience to experience a week of nature walks, science experiments and team-building in the beautiful Adirondacks. Every year the Angel Fund makes sure all those who cannot afford the trip can go. In addition, 7th-8th graders are preparing for their end of year trip; (to the historic Baltimore Harbour for 3 days), and our HS students are applying to college or summer programs that require application fees, and planning trips to visit colleges. The Angel fund helps all those that would not otherwise be able to afford these important events in their scholastic lives.

Friends of Renaissance

ABOUT F.O.R. - TRCS is happy to introduce Friends of Renaissance, a newly formed non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to support Renaissance through fundraising initiatives. The small volunteer board consists of staff members, parents and alumni who will oversee all of the campaigns that raise funds for various programs, as well as planning events and new campaigns as needs arise. Any online donations you make will be payable to "Friends of Renaissance" (no longer to Renaissance Charter School or TRCS) and your receipts will be reflected as such. We guarantee your donation will go to support the program/s of your choice. Anyone interested in joining the board, or volunteering on a committee can contact Rebekah Oakes or Peggy Heeney 718-803-0060.
