Reflections from Chris: Two Months In

What does the Rush County Community Foundation mean to you? Why have you taken interest in supporting our organization?


These are some of the questions I have been asking in my first weeks on the job as the new executive director of RCCF. It likely doesn’t surprise you that the answers are nearly as many as the number of times I have posed the question.


Community, giving back, family, scholarships, philanthropy, local, and future are common portions of our supporters’ answers.


Very quickly, I have experienced a variety of RCCF’s work. I have evaluated scholarship applications. I have packed diapers with a 4-H club for First5’s From the Bottom Up Diaper Pantry. And I have presented plans for the transformative REC Center project to be housed in our former Wal-Mart building. I am learning something new every day.


From each of these experiences, I have taken away a sense of excitement for the future of Rush County and appreciation for all of those involved in supporting our causes.


I am honored and thrilled to return home to the community where I grew up and that provided the foundational experiences of my life and career. I look forward to continuing our organization’s mission to enrich and enhance the quality of life in Rush County, not only today, but for generations to come.


We are grateful to have you as part of our team to accomplish these meaningful and rewarding endeavors. Reach out any time – I really am curious about your answers to those opening questions. Thanks for your interest and support!
