RTFC practices strong rural advocacy and education through its support of several industry organizations and foundations. Each year, RTFC puts a percentage of its earnings in a cooperative education fund. Monies from this fund support grants and programs that encourage development and education in rural America.

As an active associate member of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, RTFC annually sponsors speakers and other events at the organization's conferences as well as provides funding through donations and sponsorships to its affiliated organization, the Foundation for Rural Service.

RTFC also is an associate member and supporter of WTA whose mission is to strengthen the ability of its members to provide affordable, advanced broadband and communications services to rural America.

We're also proud that RTFC’s leadership serves on the boards and committees of these organizations and foundations.
