Our foremost need is for monetary donations. The center gets basic funding from the Zakat Foundation in Bridgeview, IL. However, significant funding is still needed to fund the center’s operations, its current programs, educational and cultural events, and to continue to raise political and social awareness of the plight of the Rohingya.
RCC is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and your donation is tax exempt. You will receive at receipt at the end of the year for any donation you have made to RCC.
Monetary donations can be made via Paypal using the link below.
Checks made payable the The Rohingya Culture Center can be sent to:
Rohingya Cultural Center
2740 West Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60659
Donations would be used for center expenses, such as staff, caseworker, translator, and ESL/Citizenship teacher salaries. Additionally, they will fund our community, after school, and educational programs. These are not Zakat eligible.
RCC also accepts donations in the form of school supplies and computers for distribution to the Rohingya refugee community in Chicago. Please contact us via email or phone if you would like to make such a donation. Please note that we do not accept clothing or furniture donations.
