• $22,000 to the Ohio County Commissioners toward the purchase and installation of a new and updated digital 911 system;

• $10,000 to American Legion Post 59 toward the purchase of a cross mold to produce memorial crosses for annual Memorial Day displays at the Ohio County Courthouse;

• $6,750 to Family Connections, a regional social service agency, toward the purchase of new computers;

• $3,000 to the Ohio County Convention, Tourism, & Visitors Commission to purchase a citywide public address sound system.

In announcing the awarding of these grants, foundation President Marianne Wiggers stated, “RSRF was able to end a very challenging financial year in 2013 while still awarding almost $900,000 in new grants to government, educational and other nonprofit organizations in its region comprised of Ohio and Ripley counties and the city of Aurora.

“These new grants increase the total grants awarded by the foundation to over $27 million during the past 17 years, which we feel have clearly and permanently had a positive impact on the lives of many, many residents of southeastern Indiana.”
