Youth in Philanthropy Fund

Every year since 2005, a group of Rush County students have joined together to grant funds to student-led organizations serving Rush County. Rush County philanthropists Rick and Betsy Williams started the Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) Fund to promote youth involvement and teach philanthropy to our next generation of community leaders.

The Youth in Philanthropy [YIP] Fund makes grants to youth-led service projects and youth organizations in Rush County. Any youth involved with a non-profit organization in Rush County who has a philanthropic project or service idea to benefit Rush County or Rush County residents is encouraged to apply. This application is to be completed by the youth and overseen by their adult leader. Applications are available at and are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019, to the Rush County Community Foundation, 117 N. Main St., Rushville.  For questions, email or call 765-938-1177.
