Foundation Releases Annual Report to the Community

From Rappahannock Record, 11/19/15

IRVINGTON—River Counties Community Foundation (RCCF) presented its "2015 Report to the Community" at a recent event honoring board members, donors, and friends at the Steamboat Era Museum.

"Over $340,000 was awarded this year to nonprofits serving Lancaster, Middlesex and Northumberland counties," said advisory board chairman Susan Pittman. "This is an increase of 18% from 2014."

Community grants awarded by RCCF focus on economic prosperity, educational success, health and wellness, and cultural vibrancy.

"In addition to the increase in grant-making, three new funds have been established this year, bringing the total funds managed by RCCF to nearly $10 million," said regional affiliate director Margaret Nost.

"It has been a busy and successful year," Pittman added. "In addition to the community grants program, RCCF actively supported local organizations during the 2015 Amazing Raise in September and is currently rallying support for Together.Stronger., our annual fundraising campaign."

Together.Stronger. received considerable support in 2014 from donors recognizing the importance of philanthropy in the community, she said. Nonprofit organizations fill a crucial role in creating a healthy community, and greatly need support.

Advisory board members Jay Wallin and Gene Mapes will end their terms this year. Both were recognized for their outstanding service and commitment.
