RCC Membership


RCC Resident Membership Benefits

Your RCC Membership Benefits include having a voice in shaping Ravenswood’s future, by connecting you to one another, to businesses, local government, area schools and local charities.

Our approach to community issues has always been proactive and inclusive. Members stay connected to Ravenswood through a monthly newsletter, year round calendar of events, volunteer opportunities and member discounts. We also work to keep them informed on neighborhood news and happenings, safety initiatives and special programming.

Most importantly, residents like you enable us to continue our work making Ravenswood a safe and beautiful place to live, one with great schools and a thriving local economy. Resident memberships and donations allow us to maintain the bioswales along the Bearteau Greenway. They help us organize fundraisers that give back to neighborhood schools. They help us facilitate the Ravenswood Holiday Walk, where the winter clothing and canned food drive supply neighborhood shelters and pantries. They support us in the massive undertaking that is the Ravenswood ArtWalk, now in its 14th year of opening up Ravenswood’s industrial corridor, showcasing local artists and galleries and filling the streets themselves with art, live music, food and craft beer. Every success the RCC achieves is a success for the Ravenswood residents like you who help us make these things possible.
