RFMU Partnership with FORWARD

River Falls Municipal Utilities (RFMU) has long embraced its role as a leader in the community and recognizes the importance of an excellent educational system.  We appreciate entities with similar values, which is why we’re so pleased to form a partnership with the Forward Foundation.  As of April 2015, RFMU is providing a $50,000 long term fund to the St. Croix Valley Foundation where the interest earning will then be used to fund grants distributed though the Forward Foundation.  The long term fund allows RFMU an opportunity to directly raise the quality of education in the River Falls public schools through such wonderful entities like the Forward Foundation. We couldn't be happier with the collaborative efforts from all involved and look forward to seeing the fruits of the fund for years to come.
