The RRHA of Illinois Barbara Carpenter Education Fund was established to honor the memory of Barbara Carpenter, a charter member of RRHA of IL., and a long time Board member and Association leader. RRHA of Illinois is proud to be able to offer this assistance and appreciates the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln for administering the Education Fund.

The fund provides donations to charitable purposes only, such as to non profit 501(c)(3) public charities, schools, government programs, churches and religious organizations, and other charitable causes. Your generosity allows us to help worthwhile charities/groups in our rural communities that in most instances are serving the actual families that reside on properties owned and/or managed by RRHA of Illinois member companies.

Please consider joining those who have already made a contribution to the Fund in order that we can continue to build on this worthwhile and necessary program to assist our rural Illinois communities. All contributions are tax deductible.

You may send your contribution to:


205 South Fifth Street, Suite 930

Springfield, IL 62701.
