"RCS"

 
Rotary Community Service, Incorporated (RCS, Inc.) is the 501c3 entity of the Rotary Club of Spokane. RCS, Inc. is funded by donations of the members of the Rotary Club of Spokane and two other trusts. 

The dollars from RCS, Inc. are spent through the various committees of the club providing goods and services to the disabled, youth, civic organizations, and others in our community with needs. Dollars spent through RCS, Inc. are often multiplied by three due to matching grants, in-kind donations of goods and services, and discounts from vendors.
