Events

RAMP has an excellent reputation and historical record of being an organization that respects the desires of donors and ensures proper and compelling usage of all gifts. RAMP has proven the ability to launch new programs and maintain existing programs. It is because of the demonstrated and tangible results that nearly 75% of RAMP’s revenue comes from local, state, and federal entities, however; RAMP’s financial stability is also a result of diversification of income through Special Events.
