Western Kansas Community Foundation helps grow philanthropy by providing a vehicle for individuals, families and businesses to give back through a variety of funds and other charitable tools. As a collection of over 200 different funds, the Foundation serves the philanthropic wishes of people just like you, who care about their community.
The Western Kansas Community Foundation (WKCF) began in 1996 and has been working ever since to connect great programs and charities with donors who care. The Foundation is governed and administered by a volunteer board of directors and is designed to accommodate donor wishes, special concerns and interests. The board is responsible for oversight of the Foundation and that a reasonable rate of return is achieved on all funds entrusted to its care.
Representing the broadest charitable interests of its donors, WKCF seeks to improve all aspects of the quality of life in the 15 counties of southwest Kansas. In addition to grants made from donor funds, the Foundation's pool of unrestricted funds is granted on a quarterly basis and used to award competitive, high-impact grants to support nonprofit organizations and charitable entities. From the beginning, the WKCF has experienced significant growth through generous support and passionate leadership to now include assets of over $26 million.
