March Matchness!

The Rush County Community Foundation exists to make an impact in the Rush County community – forever.  However, this impact cannot be made without you.


Hopefully you’ve seen information in the community about our current fundraising drive called “March Matchness” and additionally, our participation in a nationwide basketball-themed fundraising program called Brackets for Good.  As the only charity in Rush County and the only community foundation in the state to participate, we’re excited for the opportunity to not only raise money for Rush County, but to maximize our donors’ dollars as well! For every dollar donated to our “unrestricted endowment funds” that support our community grants, a dollar is given.  In March, $1 = $2, it’s as simple as that.


Our goal is to raise $25,000 in the month of March for the “unrestricted endowment” funds that support our community grants program.  In this case, $1 goes much further than usual:  it gets matched, while also supporting our community grants program, ultimately impacting every person and nonprofit in the community!  The best part?  Because your donation is endowed, it gives back to the changing needs within Rush County forever.


Make your impact in our community TODAY!  Our participation in Brackets for Good begins at 8PM, and if we can raise more funds than our competitor, Shares, Inc., by next Friday we will proceed on to the next round of the tournament!  Each round we progress on to in the Brackets for Good challenge brings us one step closer to the championship title and grand prize of $10,000!  Beyond showing your Rush County pride, your investment in the Foundation is providing opportunities for our community for generations to come.


Keep up on the tournament by following along on social media:  the Foundation is present on Facebook, Twitter (@GiveINRush), and Instagram (rushcofoundation).  Our website will continuously update in real-time to show our tournament standings and contributions received.   Donate online at, stop by our office at 117 N. Main St., Rushville, IN 46173, or call us at (765) 938-1177 for more information.
