Join us in our annual appeal to GIVE 365 Rusk!

All of us involved with GIVE 365 Rusk share something special and deeply rewarding. We have had the opportunity to engage our local nonprofits and join other 365 members, pooling our resources for a shared and leveraged charitable impact.  Together, in 2023, we gave more than $7,500 to twelve community projects and programs while adding over $2,500 to our FOREVER GIVE 365 Endowment Fund.

Your $365 contribution makes you a GIVE 365 Rusk member. Not only will you know that your gift is improving life in Rusk County, but you can play an active role in making that improvement happen! All GIVE 365 members get a vote in determining which nonprofit initiatives get funded each year.  

Your membership in GIVE 365 Rusk supports:

  • 60% supports your favorite nonprofit initiatives to improve Rusk County’s quality of life.
  • 30% is invested in the GIVE 365 Rusk Endowment Fund to benefit nonprofits forever.
  • 10% supports the annual free event where the entire community is invited to attend and learn more about the grant-funded initiatives.

The Rusk County Community Foundation (RCCF) has long been a fixture in Rusk County celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2022. Our 35 Funds have issued over $600,000 in grants during that time. In 2023, RCCF merged with the Eau
Claire Community Foundation (ECCF) to leverage the combined expertise, energy, and relationships as an affiliate. The new affiliation between ECCF and RCCF will allow both Foundations to serve their communities even better by pooling logistical and financial resources.

As partners with ECCF, donors have the same charitable opportunities and flexibility to donate toward special projects or areas of interest. They may also direct their gifts to where community needs are greatest, as identified from time to time by the RCCF Board of Directors. We are here to support nonprofit organizations, schools, churches, and other charitable causes in the county. Together we grow. 

RCCF’s Mission is to improve the quality of life in Rusk County through permanent endowments and grant giving.
