Roseville Community Fund
This is an exciting time for Roseville, as the community has the opportunity to build the Roseville Community Fund to ensure there are permanent resources to support the community’s needs for the present and future.
The opportunity to build the Roseville Community Fund is thanks to a generous commitment from the Twomey Foundation, Warren County United Way and Galesburg Community Foundation. Together, these three organizations issued a challenge grant to the community to raise $70,000. The goal is for Roseville to raise $70,000 to match this initial investment for a permanently endowed Community Fund to aid nonprofits and community initiatives making a difference in Roseville.
To date (6/2/21), the Roseville Community Foundation is less than $8,000 away from their match goal of $70,000! This is thanks to many generous individuals, alumni, businesses and friends who love Roseville.
A major part of the Community Fund is aiding local nonprofits that make a difference in Roseville.

Why is it important to have a permanently endowed Community Fund for Roseville?
One of many reasons is the fund can provide grants to nonprofits in Roseville serving the people who call the community home. At Thanksgiving 2020, RCF awarded a $500 grant to Helping Hands Food Pantry of Roseville to ensure families in need received hams for the holiday. The RCF committee received so many wonderful thank you’s.
One recipient wrote:
“Thank you so much for the ham. It’s been a tough year. The help I received has been such a blessing.”
This is only the beginning of the impact we can make in our community.
