To the extent possible under law, the Responsible Endowments Coalition has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to the legacy written resources produced by REC. This work is published from the United States.

REC has opted to dedicate its work to the public domain by waiving all rights. This means that individuals and organizations may take what is useful from REC’s written resources and adapt materials to fit their needs without restriction (e.g. there is no need to credit REC). We believe what’s most important is that REC’s resources support the next incarnation of the work, based on the needs of those on the frontlines.
