PRESCRIPTION FOR CHANGE® FOUNDATION
Rodan + Fields® is about helping people create opportunities to change lives. The Prescription for Change (PFC) Foundation is at the very core of this mission. Since 2008, R+F has been giving back through the PFC with the goal that everyone can believe in more and empower change for themselves and their community.
OUR MISSION AND IMPACT
The PFC Foundation helps students in need on their journey to becoming a prescription for change in their communities by fostering belief in themselves. Throughout the years, the PFC has focused on helping individuals at a crossroads in their lives. In 2014, the PFC partnered with buildOn to support its work of breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education.
To date, PFC has granted nearly $2 million in charitable gifts, sponsored more than 200,767 buildOn student program days and funded a new buildOn high school program in a distressed community to expand services for additional youth in need.
