Founders Society

Take a look around Rusk County. You see the marks of many great people and organizations from our past who cared about this community. Our area’s stability, prosperity, and quality of life have long been enhanced by the gifts of many generous people who have given back to our community in many ways. Our purpose is to continue that vision by encouraging the spirit of giving among the people, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and other organizations of Rusk County to the ultimate goal of benefiting our area and the people who live all around us. We will accomplish this by building permanent charitable capital, making charitable grants, and assuring donors that their legacy wishes will be carried out in accordance with their philanthropic intent.

Our Founders Society is the vehicle for securing operating funds for the Foundation’s early years until self supporting. Our campaign is now underway to recognize Founding Partners and their level of support. Members are asked to pledge a minimum of three years.
