RCCF Delivers 2016 Report to the Community

The River Counties Community Foundation Advisory Board (“RCCF”) presented its annual Report to the Community at a reception at the Steamboat Museum on November 16, according to RCCF chair Susan Pittman.   The reception was a celebration of RCCF’s 20 years of service to the residents of Lancaster, Northumberland and Middlesex counties.  

The report highlights the outstanding progress made by the foundation in its annual disbursements for philanthropic purposes.  In the founding year, 1997, the foundation made competitive grants of $1,500 to three nonprofits.  This year, more than $1,000,000 in total grants was available for investment in a variety of important nonprofits.

“This tremendous growth and success points to the wisdom of our founding Board members,” Pittman, said. “Our success is also due to a hard-working local Board through the years, our terrific Affiliate Director, Margaret Nost, the commitment to philanthropy by residents who established 75 funds, and the community at large in the support of Together.Stronger., which is RCCF’s annual fundraising initiative.”

Margaret Nost, Affiliate Director noted, “The relationship that RCCF has with The Community Foundation was another key element in our track record.  Their administrative support minimizes our costs locally.”

The officers for 2017 were introduced at the meeting.  They are William O. Vose, Chair; Mary Kay Rotert, Vice Chair; Brownie Watkins, Secretary; and Martha Heric, Treasurer.  

Two departing members of the Board, Mary Lib Hoinkes and John Coyle were recognized and thanked for their many years of service.
