Bill Rube, Executive Director

Bill Rube, who is well known as an amateur equestrian, horse owner and most recently a powerhouse fundraiser at the United States Hunter Jumper Association Foundation, joined the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund in November of 2017.

Bill will aid the LMCF in its mission to support meaningful organizations and equestrians in need.

“I'm thrilled to be a part of the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund,” said Bill. “I've spent a good deal of my professional career collecting donations for various organizations, and it's very exciting for me to help Lindsay align the charitable fund within the hunter and jumper community.”

Bill has distinguished himself in the equestrian nonprofit community through his role as the fund development director of the USHJA Foundation. During this position, he gained wide acclaim for his commitment to the hunter and jumper industry as well as his spirit for volunteering.

As a result, Bill was awarded the USHJA President’s Distinguished Service Award in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, Rube was named the USHJA Volunteer of the Year and in 2016 he was presented with the Moran Family Excellence Award.
