We Have a Very Exciting Update

The time is right!

We’ve been quietly sharing news about the $5 million proposal we submitted to Lilly Endowment Inc. at the end of August to bring the dream of a community center to Rush County. (Read more about the history of this project.) Guess what? The time is right, and we’re ready to shout it from the rooftops – our proposal has been funded! We’re so excited and grateful for this life-changing opportunity! Please read the Endowment’s official press release. Our hearty congratulations to all of the recipients!


We know you have plenty of questions. And while we have some of the answers, we need your patience as we identify the next steps of this massive project. We will be as transparent as possible as we begin formulating our plan.


So for now, let’s celebrate! Our community’s future looks brighter every day, and this project is one of many reasons why.


Thank You to Following for Their Generous Support!

We have so many people to thank and share in this good fortune. First and foremost, our deepest gratitude goes to Lilly Endowment and the GIFT VII Program for not only offering this transformational opportunity but for believing in the collaborative vision and heart of the Rush County community.
