Our Life Blood

Non-profit organizations such as the RV/MH Heritage Foundation depend upon the generosity of friends of the organization to fund the day-to-day operations and for on-going capital improvements.

It's our life blood and we hope those friends that have enjoyed a good life from the fruits of the RV/MH Industries will continue to support the Foundation. We are fortunate to have pledges totaling $11,082,917 and have received $8,157,917 of those pledges -- plus $1,997,500 in non-monetary gifts of kind for a grand total of $10,155,417 received.

Please call us at 800-378-8694 to add your name to the list by pledging today.
