In a continuing effort to raise the profile of NCCF in the community, advisory committee co-chair Donna McCurdy (pictured) and committee member Sue Klett spoke to the Massies Mill Ruritan Club at its February dinner meeting. For 68 years, the club has supported many community activities from the volunteer fire department, to the Future Farmers of America, to Nelson County Public Schools. The NCCF presentation met with a warm reception. Donna noted that the mission of the Ruritans somewhat overlaps with NCCF’s mission to address local humanitarian needs through grant-making to nonprofits serving the same constituents. She asked Ruritan members to consider ways in which the two organizations could collaborate on fund raising and serving Nelson residents, and to help NCCF get the word out on our grant-making efforts.
