Life Changing Charitable Giving®
Children Shouldn't Have to Die Because of Where They are Born...

Russian children with rare, often deadly, diseases have no one to turn to for help.
Help make a miracle happen for these children. Help them get the groundbreaking American medical care that will change their lives forever.

The Russian American Children’s Foundation (RACF), founded in 2012 as Rusfond USA, is a U.S. based children's charity that helps Russian children with rare diseases before it's too late.

Rare diseases affect a small percentage of the population making treatment options very limited, especially in Russia. About 30% of children with rare diseases die before the age of five. RACF saves these children’s lives by providing the advanced medical care they need. Children who would be disabled, now function as other typically developing boys and girls. Children facing death now live. Families are forever grateful because their children have new lives through RACF’s life changing and lifesaving programs.

The RACF 100% US Spending Guarantee.

RACF believes that groundbreaking American medical care will change the lives of Russian children with rare and, often deadly, diseases forever. RACF guarantees that all funds donated by our kind, compassionate, caring, generous, and hard‑working supporters will be spent in the United States. RACF guarantees that it will never transfer funds to any entity, foundation, organization, or individual based in Russia either directly or indirectly through other U.S. based 501(c)(3) public charities. All donated RACF funds will be spent in the United States or with U.S. based 501(c)(3) public charities who agree to adhere to this policy as verified on Schedule F, Part II of their annual report to the IRS on Form 990.
