Royal Neighbors of America Funding Groups on Campus

RNA provides women and those they care about opportunities to connect with each other and their communities.

Various service groups and sororities are eager to become a Royal Neighbors of America Chapters. The requirements are simple - meet and serve. Because so many are already doing these things, becoming a chapter is recognizing the work that is already being done. Once a 5-10 member group is established, a woman is elected president of the chapter, and the forms are filled out, each chapter is awarded a $500 start-up check. Then, depending on how often they meet and serve, they can receive up to $600 a quarter.

Royal Neighbors of America is recognizing the needs in the Augustana College and QCA communities. Women are encouraged in their leadership, and both men and women are reflecting on the gifts, talents, and passions they can offer the community. Royal Neighbors of America's partnership with the Center for Vocational Reflection is equipping service leaders at Augustana College.
