"Ruthmere Champion" is a special recognition designation for people, businesses and granting organizations that are committed to seeing Ruthmere Campus thrive now and forever.   The threshold for being recognized as a Ruthmere Champion is a minimum qualifying gift commitment of $25,000 gifted over a 1-5 year period.   The goal of the Champions campaign is to raise $200,000 annually in current program support, while simultaneously building $5 million in endowed funds at the Community Foundation of Elkhart County.

Qualifying Champion support comes in the forms of membership, Ruthmere Forever giving, Adopt a Pom, or program underwriting sponsorships.  Legacy Ruthmere Champion gifts are also accepted for will and estate plans.   Simply use the Ruthmere Champions Form to select your appropriate gift intentions.  Ruthmere Champions are committed to making Ruthmere Campus facilities a permanently vibrant and financially sustainable piece of the Elkhart community.
