Rube Brings Years of Development Experience to the Team
Wellington, FL. (Dec. 5, 2017) – The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund has enlisted prominent equestrian William ‘Bill’ Rube to be the executive director.
Rube is a pillar in the equestrian industry. Whether it is his decades of equestrian experience, multiple United States Hunter Jumper Association awards or his running-joke Stationary Adult Amateur Championship photo series on Facebook, most everyone in the hunter/jumper community knows Rube.
Rube stepped up to the helm of the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund on Dec. 1. Previously, he worked at the United States Hunter Jumper Association/Foundation as the development director.
“I feel honored to take on the role of executive director of the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund. The equestrian world takes us on an amazing journey, and I am excited to share the good that the Fund is doing,” he said. “As a longtime equestrian, my skills, knowledge and relationships will help further the Fund’s mission and help those in our community.”
The Fund is a private, charitable fund that reflects its namesake’s personal interests, priorities and values. LMCF focuses on improving the lives of children with special needs and enabling access opportunities to education. It also focuses on providing care, compassion and protection to animals.
“Bill is an incredible asset to our team as we build upon the work the Fund has accomplished, be it sponsoring classes at national and international charity horse shows, offering grant opportunities for riders or donating to organizations that support our mission,” said LMCF Founder Lindsay Maxwell. “Bill brings with him decades of industry knowledge and experience that will be instrumental to achieving our goals.”
Rube brings to the Fund a significant history of fundraising experience. During his tenure with the USHJA, he orchestrated a collective effort to reach and surpass goals set by the USHJA Foundation to support its programs, grants and scholarships. For his dedication, Rube was awarded the USHJA President’s Distinguished Service Award in 2012 and 2013, the USHJA Volunteer of the Year award in 2014 and from Caroline Moran, the Moran Family Award for Excellence in 2016.
“Volunteering in the equestrian community,” Rube said, “has been both rewarding and rejuvenating. As a lifelong equestrian, I believe in giving back and working to make this industry the best it can be. I am excited to resume volunteering and continue working on the philanthropic side of the equestrian community, especially with the USHJA.”
Rube will continue utilizing his unique skillset and experiences to achieve the goals of the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund. He will be working with the team to determine where LMCF’s resources will have the largest impact in helping children, animals and charities whose missions the Fund supports.
