Board of Directors

70 Rush County residents have chosen to serve on the Foundation’s Board of Directors throughout the past 28 years.  Most of our board members have committed to serve two 3-year terms.  Some of our most passionate volunteers have elected to accept a board position a second time, serving nearly half of our existence!

Our amazing volunteers provide vision, knowledge, connections, and oversight to ensure operations are efficient and effective and that the Foundation is positioned to raise and distribute funds to best serve the community.  Thank you to the folks listed below for your time, commitment, and showing your love of Rush County through your service through our organization:
