Joseph Hinchman Cemetery Pass-Through Fund Established

Pete Osting and Julie Connolly recently established the Joseph Hinchman Cemetery Pass-Through Fund.  This non-permanent fund was created to assist the on-demand needs of the Hinchman Cemetery, as a supplement to routine expenses currently covered by the permanently endowed Joseph Hinchman Cemetery Fund at the Rush County Community Foundation.



The Hinchman Cemetery is located on East 225 North in Rush County.  Pete, Julie, and several other family members and friends have cared for the quaint, rural cemetery for years.  When considering how to ensure the Cemetery is cared for in future generations, Pete wasted no time contacting the Rush County Community Foundation to inquire about the establishment of a Fund.  Pete’s late wife, Pat, was one of the Foundation’s first volunteers, and their family has since remained advocates for furthering the charitable good of the community via the Rush County Community Foundation.  Pete and Julie knew that in order to maintain the Hinchman Cemetery into the future, it would be necessary to have money reserved, but available, and that the Foundation was the perfect solution to meet their needs.


If you would like to make a donation to this Fund you may send your donation to the Rush County Community Foundation, 117 N. Main St., Rushville, IN 46173 with a note included that you would like it added to the Joseph Hinchman Cemetery Pass-Through Fund.


Meeting the philanthropic needs of Rush County since 1991, The Rush County Community Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit public charity established  to serve donors, award grants and scholarships, and provide leadership to enrich and enhance the quality of life in Rush County, Indiana, not only today, but for our future generations.
