2023 recipients of Lucketts Ruritan scholarships

Our focus this year is to fully fund the Club’s scholarship program, expand scholarships to include students wishing to attend a community college or vocational school, and to expand the Club’s support for youth in the Lucketts community.

JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary clean-up day.

Lucketts Ruritan Club members and other community volunteers partnered with the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy for a Fall clean up event at the JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary.

Summer Camp Scholarships allowed 20 Lucketts kids to attend camp.

2024 is a year of expanded goals for the Lucketts Ruritan Club. The need in our area is great. Please Donate!

Despite a challenging economy and concerning world events, we hope to raise $20,000 through Give Choose to:

  1. ensure that our scholarships, including the new program for students attending trade schools, are fully funded,
  2. increase our sense of community by sponsoring events to bring people together, and
  3. grow our current community and youth grants designed to enhance the lives of Lucketts residents. We rely on and appreciate your financial support.


The mission of the Lucketts Ruritan Club is to make our community a better place in which to live and work. We accomplish this mission by engaging the community in its care. Through community service, fellowship, and goodwill, we work for the common good of our neighbors.
For over four decades, The Lucketts Ruritan Club has been and continues to be committed to serving our community through fellowship, goodwill, and community service. We are dedicated to improving our community and to developing better understanding between people.

Much more than the village of Lucketts, our territory and members include the area “from the Y to the bridge, and the river to the ridge.” This area has not always been the focus of Loudoun County Government. After all, this is where you will find Lost Corner! However, the Lucketts Ruritan Club helps to fill that gap.

  • When Lucketts Elementary School needed support for its music programs, key instructional software, and appropriate chairs to assist with focus skills, we provided the funding.
  • During 2023, we funded an additional $5,000 in college scholarships to outstanding local students, and recognized two students for outstanding citizenship, which brought total scholarships awarded since 2020 to over $76,000.
  • We are a partner for the Student Environmental Action Showcase (SEAS) held annually by the Loudoun Environmental Education Alliance. Two students from Lucketts have entries this year.
  • When we learned that a large number of students at Lucketts Elementary School did not own warm coats for winter, we stepped up, as we have for over a decade. Last year, we delivered 43 coats to meet that need.
  • When the County cut its support for low-income children to attend summer camp, we have provided funding in 2022 to supplement and expand the program.
  • When Faith Chapel Gathering Place learned that their roof needed to be painted to preserve the integrity of the building, we provided a matching grant for half of the required funds.
  • When Faith Chapel Gathering Place wanted to provide more events for the community, we sponsored various events such as quartets from the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra.
  • During election cycles, we sponsor and conduct ‘Meet the Candidates’ events to promote voting and to provide our community with an opportunity to dialog directly with those running for office.
  • Financially and through volunteer hours, we continue to support the Lucketts Food Pantry and co-sponsored the inaugural Luckett History Fair in 2023.
  • Since 2022 we have worked with the Black History Committee of Thomas Balch Library and the Trustees of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church on Bald Hill Road in Lucketts to preserve their building and their legacy.
  • As a report to the community, the Club publishes ‘Lucketts News & Notes‘, which reports on and describes the people, programs, and places that makes Lucketts a vibrant and diverse community.
  • In total, Lucketts Ruritan members donated 4943 volunteer hours to Lucketts community efforts in 2023.
