Mission Statement

The RESCU Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established to promote and maintain the health and medical well-being of the participants of Renaissance Faires, historical performances and other artistic events through financial assistance, advocacy, education and preventative programs.

Description

The name " RESCU " stands for: Renaissance Entertainers Services Crafters United. The pursuit of charity status was completed in 2003 and the RESCU Foundation, Inc. emerged in the spring of 2004 with a plan, a dream, and the endless energy of veteran participants of festivals.

Currently our Board of Directors seats 12 members, which include actors, artisans, service workers and festival patrons dedicated to the medical health and well-being of our community. The RESCU Foundation, Inc. serves an average of 100 clients a year both with negotiating bills and financial assistance, with some cases classified as ongoing. The number of clients assisted has hit the 600 mark, which includes simple medical problems to long term cases.

To date RESCU has disbursed over $450,000 worth of medical aid, and in the last 4 years, our Advocacy Program has achieved nearly $3 million in medical bill abatement for our applicants.
