In order for the Richie McFarland Children’s Center to continue to serve as many children as possible, we need the ongoing support of partnerships big and small.
“D.F. Richard has been the primary sponsor for Touch-A-Truck for more than a decade. Our employees and I love participating in this family-centered event—every smile on every child’s face is just priceless. I’m proud to support the work of this great organization.”
—Rick Card, General Manager
Donations to support our organization help to offset program expenses and keep RMCC strong. State and federal funding does not cover the cost of delivering high-quality, individualized services. The impact of your investment is significant.
Analysis of ESS programs statewide in 2014 and again in 2015 revealed that RMCC is one of the most cost-effective programs in NH. Ongoing state audits find our services to be fully compliant with "very high outcomes" - in other words, excellent results - for children and families.
Each year, donations to RMCC’s Annual Appeal help fulfill our mission to provide the highest quality pediatric therapies and family support services. Some donors give to remember a loved one, others give to show their appreciation for services they have received. Whatever the reason for giving, your donation will benefit the entire community. Early Intervention services like those offered at RMCC have been shown to:
- Promote children’s learning and development
- Support parents in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher
- Enhance parents’ knowledge of child development
- Develop parents’ understanding of their child’s temperament, unique strengths and learning style
- Connect families to resources and supports in their community
- Build the confidence of children and their parents
- Help children enter school ready to learn
There are several funds available which offer an opportunity to have targeted impact on RMCC:
- The RMCC Endowment Fund (committing to our future)
- RMCC’s Capital Fund (investing in our facility)
- Founding Mothers Scholarship Fund (partnership with families)
- Miriam Stahl Family Assistance Fund (lending families a hand)

Everyone has a talent to share, and one of the keys to RMCC’s success is tapping into a volunteer’s skills and passion, and then matching it with our needs. A volunteer can help out on the day of a fundraising event, or may be more involved in the committees that plan them. Volunteers may help with administrative tasks, clean-up projects, or, when appropriate, serve as a specialized volunteer with children and families. In addition, each year we actively recruit new members to serve on our board of directors and standing committees of the board.
Please send us an email to volunteer with RMCC.
