RMM SPONSORSHIP SOCIETY

Sponsorship through RMM’s Sponsorship Society helps better sustain the vital programs and services offered by RMM by providing regular and ongoing contributions. It cultivates a unique and ongoing relationship between the donor, RMM and the individuals and families involved in the RMM community.
