About the The Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC): The RFC is a public foundation that provides for the educational and emotional needs of children whose parents have suffered because of their progressive activities and who, therefore, are no longer able to provide fully for their children. The RFC also provides grants for the educational and emotional needs of targeted activist youth.
The RFC’s guiding principles are:
- All people have equal worth. We actively oppose white supremacy, racism, homophobia, misogyny and all other forms of oppression by supporting people and organizations dedicated to eradicating them.
- World peace is a necessity
- People are more important than profits
- Society must function within ecologically sustainable limits.
We are actively trying to live up to these principles in our internal and external work.
We are a very small public foundation (3 full time and one part time staff) with several unique characteristics. First, we are a nonprofit that maintains a special relationship with Rosenberg/Meeropol family members. Second, we support activists and activist organizations, but we are not ourselves a grassroots activist organization. Finally, we are a grant-maker funding targeted progressive families whose grants budget comes mostly from individual donors, supplemented by an endowment.
As of June 2021, we are still working remotely but we anticipate returning to the RFC office in Easthampton, MA for at least a few days a week some time in the summer of 2021.
The RFC is an equal opportunity employer and, when hiring, actively seeks a diverse pool of candidates.
