Rush County Chamber of Commerce Fund and the Rush County Community Foundation 29th April 2016 As a part of the new series reviewing the Rush County Community Foundation’s “designated endowment” funds, we’ll be taking a weekly look at the Rush County nonprofit organizations that have funds that support their mission and work held at RCCF. This week’s installment focuses on the Rush County Chamber of Commerce. When traveling to or through a new community, the local Chamber of Commerce is the go-to place for information and resources on the community’s attractions and businesses. In addition to providing information to those passing through, the Chamber is a resource for those considering relocation and for those that currently reside in the community. In Rush County, the Rush County Chamber of Commerce acts as glue for our community. As a resource for our local businesses and individuals, the Chamber facilitates the relationships and events that make Rush County the warm, friendly community we are. If you enjoy our local parades, concerts, and festivals, you can thank the Rush County Chamber of Commerce staff and volunteers for organizing and executing these happenings. Beyond acting as a conduit for fun in our community, the Rush County Chamber of Commerce assists businesses considering our community and businesses that exist in our community by providing essential local information: housing options, education, and basic area information such as entertainment outlets, religious institutions, nonprofit organizations, and medical offices. Connecting people, places, and organizations is the Chamber’s primary role in our community. The Rush County Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit organization that does a great deal for our community with limited resources. The Rush County Chamber of Commerce Fund, an endowment fund at the Rush County Community Foundation, assists the Chamber by supporting their operating expenses. Among these expenses covered include needs essential to promoting our community to businesses and tourists. If you are interested in enhancing the quality of life in Rush County and furthering the impact of our Chamber of Commerce, we encourage you to consider a donation to the Rush County Chamber of Commerce Fund! All money donated is permanently endowed, giving back to the Chamber, and invariably, our community, for generations.
