The Rochelle Community Foundation provides a simple way for community members to support local causes and organizations they care about most.
Rochelle, Creston, Kings, Lindenwood, Esmond, Steward. What do these communities have in common? They are served by the Rochelle Township High School and the Rochelle Area Community Foundation.
The Community Foundation provides a simple way for community members to support the causes and organizations they care most about. We thank our founder, the late Leonard Carmichael for his leadership in having the vision and generous spirit to have established this organization. Leonard had a great love for his Lord, his family, his fellow man and his community.
Leonard has left us his legacy. From his initial gift, with the generous giving of community members and local businesses, the Foundation has 1.8 million dollars in endowed assets. Leonard the farmer planted a seed and has entrusted the rest of us, his community, to nourish and grow it; that it’s fruits may multiply to feed generations to come.
Were you born here or did you come later and decide to make this area your home? Did your kids go to school here? Did they go to childcare here? What does your community mean to you and how can you be a part of making it a better place? What is your passion?
You don’t have to be rich to support the community foundation, you just have to care.
