By Sue Luck, Executive Director
Roscommon County Community Foundation
For 26 years now, the Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) has had the honor of fulfilling the charitable wishes of our many donors. And it has truly been our privilege.
Our community thrives, and we owe it all to people like you who have helped us every step of the way. As someone who shares our vision of a thriving Roscommon County, we appreciate your contributions to its success. That comes in a wide variety of forms. Whether that’s by volunteering at local nonprofits, participating in community-wide dialogue, making an effort to shop and dine locally, providing opportunities for others to get involved, or donating your time, energy, and financial resources, we know that as someone who is reading this, you are one of these people who wants to see Roscommon County thrive.
At the Roscommon County Community Foundation, we challenge ourselves and our donors to strive for more. We believe that philanthropy in the county becomes greater when we work together. By partnering with us, you can maximize your charitable giving: your gift nets an immediate tax deduction while it impacts communities. We make it easy for you to give back. We have a deep understanding of Roscommon County’s unique needs and the charities that serve the area.
RCCF plays an active part in listening to the current needs of the community while also looking ahead for new opportunities. When allocating resources, we communicate with our donors about community priorities and draw upon the knowledge of our local entrusted committee members. We ensure the gifts the community gives are used in the most impactful way possible.
Philanthropy is a powerful force of change. From our rare vantage point, we witness satisfaction of the deepest kind that comes from a donor knowing that the power of their gift can be felt both within and beyond one’s lifetime.
Whether it’s one donor investing in one student, or family members supporting a cause over generations, or a group of leaders pooling resources in the face of a large-scale community need. The change that philanthropy drives is a two-way street. It’s not just the grant recipients who are affected, it’s the lives of those who have generously given that are changed as a result of their generosity.
As we enter our 27th year of carrying on the tradition of working with people who care about our community and finding inspiration in their stories, we want to express our appreciation for your generosity and support of our commitment to improve life in Roscommon County and beyond. Donors work with us to pay it forward, knowing they may not see how their generosity shapes the future. We acknowledge and appreciate your dedication, and none of this would be possible without you.

Together, we can make sure Roscommon County thrives: For good. Forever. For everyone.
