Our Mission

The mission of the Rose Annmarie Rusch Foundation, Inc. (the "Foundation") will be to help those less fortunate. It is our hope that through the work we do we can create a legacy for Rose. Rose touched many people and made this world a better place. Rose left her footprint on the world and on our souls. The Foundation will look to follow in Rose's footsteps by volunteering and making charitable donations to organizations dedicated to improve the world and helping others. The Foundation will also provide educational scholarships to students who make giving back to the community a part of their daily lives.
