Foundation Fact Friday: You Can Give to RCCF Without Giving a Penny! 16th June 2018 A concern sometimes expressed by donors or prospective donors to the Rush County Community Foundation is that they don’t have “enough” to give to make a difference. Our response is quick and simple: no donation amount is too small! Any donated amount, when permanently invested and pooled with the contributions from others, makes a powerful impact. The “small” donation grows exponentially with time and investment returns, forever giving back to the Rush County community. The Rush County Community Foundation is a convenient one-stop way to financially contribute to a number of causes and non-profit organizations. For those that love their community, there are so many ways to give beyond writing a check: did you know you can even give back without giving us a single cent?! The Rush County Community Foundation is fortunate to be a recipient of Kroger’s Community Rewards program. Kroger’s Community Rewards distributes a percentage of sales each quarter from shoppers who have enrolled their Kroger Plus cards in the program to benefit us. Signing up is EASY, too!
