Rooks County Healthcare Foundation (RCHF) has partnered with Midwest Energy to begin an endowed fund through the Heartland Community Foundation. Through the Midwest Energy Community Fund Impact Grant Program, a grant of $5,000 was made to RCHF in order to establish an endowment which will be used to help fund grant requests made to RCHF.
RCHF matched the Midwest Energy grant with another $10,000 to establish the fund. Interest from the endowment will be used to support the many non-profit healthcare entities in Rooks County that seek support for their specific projects.
The Heartland Community Foundation is facilitating the endowment by placing the funds raised in their Designated Fund program.
A designated fund is a restricted, endowed fund held by RCHF. The designated fund is invested for long-term growth and which will enable RCHF to distribute grants to qualified Rooks County entities in order to promote and advance healthcare in Rooks County. Designated funds offer a simple way to support your favorite charities in perpetuity. Grants can be made in your name, or in anonymity.
RCHF supports such groups as Rooks County Cancer Council, county EMS, recreation centers and Rooks County Health Center as well providing healthcare related equipment to county schools, law enforcement and nursing homes.
Midwest Energy has a long history of giving back to the citizens in their service area by supporting sustainable projects that help build and enhance community improvements in areas such as economic growth and development, education, community renewal and healthcare.
Please join RCHF in thanking Midwest Energy for their generous contribution to help support healthcare in Rooks County.
