On the surface, the RCCF’s Operating Fund does not elicit the “do good” excitement many of our other funds achieve. For example, “helping the poor” (the Dennis Van Wey Legacy Fund) or assisting those with “special needs” (the Shane Jenness Special Needs Fund) would not happen without a staff to make it happen. Up until now, we have achieved our growth and success ($4 million in endowed assets spread across 31 different and unique funds) as an all volunteer board. However, our future growth requires the financial support from this endowed operating fund to enlist some professional assistance. The monetary growth of the fund will assure the expansion of the Rusk County Community Foundation, as well as all the current and future funds our community’s donors create. Their charitable legacies become your legacy when you give to this fund or leave a bequest upon your or a loved one’s passing. Ask us how you can support our mission while honoring your family’s name. Your gift here makes it all happen.
