The 500 Supporters' Group
Our primary objective has been to support the Ruben Centre by helping meet its operating costs of more than $850,000 per annum.
The 500 Supporters' Group, via the Edmund Rice Foundation, is proud to have been Ruben's cornerstone donor for almost 20 years now. Since its establishment, the Group has raised in excess of $4,000,000 for the Ruben Centre.
Please join us as we endeavour to continue supporting the wonderful change and developments being achieved via the team at the Ruben Centre.
