Western Kansas Community Foundation’s mission is to enrich western Kansas life through philanthropy, collaboration and leadership.  We feel the prudent management and care of the funds entrusted to us is very important in achieving that mission.  The investment and spending policies of the Foundation are designed to ensure careful management of Foundation assets in order to serve the long-term best interests of the community.  It is recognized that these assets constitute a public trust, and the Foundation accepts a high degree of fiduciary responsibility and accountability for them.

The Foundation believes best performance will be achieved through a balanced portfolio invested for long-term growth.  Funds are invested with Commerce Trust Company and governed by the Finance Committee of Western Kansas Community Foundation.
