Initially, the intent of the Rufus C. and Leola Goff family Foundation was to encourage communities to engage in positive activities during the influential and critical years of their lives with a primary focus on cancer prevention, research projects, organ donor programs, diabetes issues and other community efforts.
Since inception, RCLG has grown to offer much more. The foundation has very active mentoring, performing arts and health and wellness programs.
Bill and Chris Kelly oversee all activities for the foundation which is funded by charitable donations and various fundraising events.
We cherish the struggles of our parents and ancestors. To keep our history alive, we are committed to promoting equity and inclusion throughout the communities we serve. We believe that it is our obligation to model diversity and to encourage racial equality in all that we do.
