Urgent Needs Funding and MayDay! Nonprofit Relief Drive

The Western Kansas Community Foundation (WKCF) is to provide urgent needs grants in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The grants will be made to eligible nonprofits from the newly established Urgent Needs Fund with the Foundation. Several donors have generously contributed to the fund, most notably Dr. Luther and Ardis Fry, Black Hills Energy and Pioneer Communications. WKCF will begin accepting applications May 1st, 2020. Grants will be made on a rolling basis, and continue while funds last.

“The Urgent Needs Fund was created to assist nonprofits whose work is being directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis,” says WKCF’s Executive Director, Conny Bogaard. “While the initial priority is to address immediate needs, additional funds will be released in the next months as fundraising continues. WKCF has the systems in place to help western Kansas communities and we hope others feel inclined to do the same.”
