The RC Foundation is a not-for-profit organization set up to host performances, art-related shows and educational and community events in downtown Newport and Cocke County, TN.  

Located in The RC Entertainment and Event Center, we wish to inspire the young and young-at-heart starting with hospitality in the Rustic Cow Ice Cream and Cow Cafe located in downtown Newport, TN - the home of Rocky Top - with a strong history and heritage of music and arts.  

We wish to provide an atmosphere in which everyone can gather, inspire and encourage each other, and be a part of our family in the beautiful Appalachia Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. 

 The RC Foundation is a fully operational 501(c)3.  Donations and granting opportunities are what help us to pay for productions and artists we want to bring here.  And, we are actively working on rehabilitating spaces in the building.

No donation of time or money is too little!
