H.1. Outreach Funds of the RC Community

The Re-evaluation Counseling (RC) Community raises and spends funds primarily to offer RC to new groups of people who are interested but not yet involved in RC. These funds may also be used to help ensure that people who need assistance can fully participate in RC activities. Specifically, Outreach Funds are to be used to

  1. develop leaders,
  2. introduce interested people to RC, and
  3. sustain the ongoing participation of Community members from oppressed and under-represented liberation groups who would not be able to participate without such assistance.

All RC Communities are expected to contribute to their Area Outreach Funds.[95] (Throughout Guideline H., “Area” refers to both an organized Area and a Developing Community.) A designated portion of these funds goes (as described in the Guidelines below) to the Community Service Fund and Rational Island Publications Fund to help us develop new RC Areas.


We are committed to offering the theory and practice of Re-evaluation Counseling to all interested people. (See Guidelines A.3. The One-Point Program of the RC Community; Guideline C.2. Goals of RC Classes; and Guideline H.2. Class Fees and Outreach Funds.) Outreach Funds make it possible for us to offer RC to many groups of people in many places. Their participation makes the Communities stronger in many ways, including by increasing the diversity of perspectives and experiences. 

To maintain the integrity of RC, it is important that we raise our own funds for this purpose, instead of being limited by conditions set by outside funding sources. (See Guideline H.13. Assisting the Re-evaluation Foundation’s Outreach Efforts.) To the extent that people are able, being a Community member includes contributing resources (through fees paid for classes, support groups, workshops, and so on) to support the development of RC Communities in new places. 

It is also important that the RC Communities account for our expenses clearly and legally.


[95] For some Communities, this will be a goal to achieve over time.
