“Can’t we all just get along?” – Rodney King

Getting along sounds like a simple request but in our increasingly diverse communities getting along with people who are different from ourselves can be a challenge. With our schools more segregated than ever, just knowing someone from a different background can be even harder.

RARE is bringing people together to meet that challenge.

  • Our Connections program brings students of diverse backgrounds together to share a common interest.
  • The James A. Davis Memorial Scholarship helps deserving students of color pursue their goals beyond high school.
  • Monthly discussion sessions bring people together to learn and explore a wide variety of issues presented by experts in racial diversity and history.
  • Our documentary film, “Roosevelt High School in Black and White,” will help us remember our past efforts to promote racial equity.

We can’t do this alone.

You can help by donating to RARE. Your gift will express your commitment to racial equity and support activities to teach students how to learn and work in a community filled with people of all races, religions, and ethnicities.

In addition to cash, RARE accepts publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value. Please contact us for details on how to donate stocks.

You may also wish to honor a deceased friend, classmate or loved one with your gift by noting it such in the “In Memoriam” list of donations.

Please act today. The need to get along can’t wait any longer.

Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization Tax ID# 87-1122881

Did you know?
A gift of marketable securities to RARE can be one of the most tax smart ways to give.

A gift of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value can be a tax wise move. As opposed to selling the stock and donating cash to RARE, by donating the stock directly you can avoid paying capital gains tax, and for people who itemize their deductions, claim the full market value of the securities as a charitable contribution. This allows you to maximize the value of your contribution to RARE. Please contact us for further information.
