BENEFITING: Rva Rapid Transit Inc
RVA Rapid Transit (RVART www.rvarapidtransit.org) is dedicated to building bridges and bonds across metro Richmond in support of regional public transit.
Richmond currently ranks in the bottom 10% of U.S. metro areas in terms of public transportation, but with the regional system that has been identified by transit planners and embraced by RVART, we can vault to the top 10%. Together we can make metro Richmond a more excellently accessible place to live, work, play, and visit.
RVART has one paid staff person, the incomparable Ross Catrow, RVART organizer and communicator extraordinaire. Your financial support is critical, because it directly empowers Ross to press forward RVART's mission daily and diligently.
We are immensely grateful for your consideration, and if you would like to set up a sustaining monthly gift, simply contact me. We are seeking to raise $10,000 by August.
Nelson Reveley, President of the Board, RVA Rapid Transit
