We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that has been established to provide professionally managed services by which individuals, families, and businesses can contribute through lifetime and estate gifts for the betterment of their Rusk County communities.

Donors have the flexibility to direct their gifts toward special projects or areas of interest. They may also direct their gifts to where community needs are greatest, as identified from time to time by the Board of Directors. We are here to support the charitable, religious, and other nonprofit organizations in the county. Our mission is to be complementary to, not competitive with, their efforts.

We Celebrated 15 Years of Enriching Our Community With Our
 2021 Report to the Community

It’s our privilege to host an event for the community every fall at which we showcase the accomplishments and impact of the Foundation and hear a testimonial from a nonprofit that has benefited from a grant and honor our Heart of Gold recipient. The event is heartwarming and encouraging!

It is a chance to get to know us and the work we do in Rusk County. Together with our generous donors, we work to create a strong culture of philanthropy. We are grateful to be a part of this giving community.

We hope you are encouraged and inspired.

Bev Dukerschein, Chair
