The Russell County Community Foundation established the Russell County Disaster Relief Fund to meet the emergency needs of Russell County and is accepting applications for immediate funding grants to nonprofit organizations providing rescue services in affected areas following a major emergency, weather event or other disaster, such as the windstorm and wildfires that our region experienced in December.

Non-profit organizations, schools, churches, and other agencies that provide direct assistance to people, property, or livestock in Russell County may be eligible for a grant. Charities can apply at www.rcacf.net. For more information, contact Angela Muller, Executive Director, at 785-445-3611 or rcacf@eaglecom.net. The application deadline is February 28, 2022.

Donations to the Russell County Disaster Relief Fund will be accepted at any time, now and beyond. We hope that with continued donations and investment growth over time, the money held in the fund will provide a permanent safety net for Russell County in the aftermath of an emergency, as well as preparedness for emergencies and recovery.

Donate online at www.rcacf.net or mail your donation to RCACF, PO Box 172, Russell, KS 67665 and note that your donation is for the Russell County Disaster Relief Fund.
