2022 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.

The Lucketts Ruritan Club has been supporting the community north of Leesburg – “from the split to the bridge and the river to the ridge” for 44 years!  We raise funds through community service activities and contributions like yours, to provide financial support to Lucketts youth and community organizations through donations and grants. The year 2023 continues to be challenging for our community with a slowing economy.

Through GiveChoose, we are asking the community to help us raise $15,000 to meet these needs.  In addition, a group of Lucketts Ruritan Club members have provided a $5,000 Challenge Gift that will match the first $5,000 we receive.  Give Early and Choose Lucketts!

Supporting our Children and the Organizations that Serve Them

Last fall, Lucketts Elementary School students returned full time to the classroom.  As has been the case in the past, many of the kids did not have a winter coat. As has been done for 10 years, the Lucketts Ruritan Club contributed 52 coats to keep them warm! No one should get cold in Lucketts.

Our focus on youth continues in 2023.
  • Your donation will expand our scholarship program to include students wishing to attend a community college or vocational school.
  • Your donation can fund Club efforts to support the New Ag School giving students interested in practical agriculture a chance to learn.

Food and Critical Supplies

Our Club has partnered with the Lucketts Food Pantry at Faith Chapel since it was started in 2018. With funds raised through GiveChoose, we were able to provide funds for a protein supplement for pantry families from November through March to keep them healthy during the most challenging winter months.  At left, some of the food your generous support has provided.

Environmental Outreach and Community Social

In a rapidly developing area of Loudoun County, wildlife preserves like JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary are a blessing to the community. The Lucketts Ruritan Club’s Environmental Committee is active in cleaning and helping maintain this source of local pride.

  • Your donation can provide a guest speaker for a program open to the community at a local church.
  • Your donation could provide entertainment for a community event at one of our many parks.

By charter, the Lucketts Ruritan Club must give back to our local community.  As a 501(c)(3) your donation to us through GiveChoose is fully tax deductible.  As a volunteer organization with no paid staff or building to operate, your donation goes straight back to support our community.  We are accountable to you, our donor, for the stewardship we demonstrate with your contribution. In addition to receiving your tax-deductible receipt from the Community Foundation, the Lucketts Ruritan Club will provide all donors with a special report at year-end showing how we distributed our GiveChoose contributions.  Thanks for Choosing Lucketts Ruritan Club! We appreciate your support!
