Nothing at RSF happens without the help of others. We have worked and continue to work with a number of groups in a variety of ways. As they are an important part of our world, we want to make sure they get some recognition.
While working on RSF is a blast, it takes a considerable amount of time, energy, and resources to do what we do. We are grateful for the folks below for providing financial support to us in our mission to improve wellness and educate our users. The project would exist without these partners.
The Degenstein Foundation has been with us from the start. They have supported the project for multiple years and provided an immeasurable amount of help along the way. The donations from the foundation helped fund technology, students, faculty, and travel. Without them RSF would surely never have come to be.
The President’s Office of Bucknell was the second group to board to the RSF train in late 2017. We wholehearted thank John Bravman for his support and guidance of the project. This support was instrumental in helping us add new community partners and build out the technology support of the project.
Geisinger has been advising and providing ideas to RSF for a few years but it wasn’t until the summer of 2018 that Geisinger made the step to provide financial support to the project. A majority of these resources will be used to support students through the academic year and into the summer of 2019.
It takes more than financial support to make RSF happen. We worked with a number of community partners to build the paths that you see in the app. We have relied and continue to rely on those partners to help us identify what is relevant and interesting in their respective communities. This ensures that our content is authentic, correct, and interesting to communities. We would like to thank the following groups for their time and energy!
T.I.M.E. has been an RSF partner for a few years and has been a model organization for RSF. The Milton in Motion Walking Club program led us to think about new ways we could engage the public with RSF and encourage folks to get out and get fit.
RSF is a part of the DCNR “Think Outside” program which is focused on getting college-aged students to get out and experience PA’s state parks and forests. They have provided access to people who have helped us explore creating paths in state parks/forests.
