Goessel Community Foundation

The concept is simple: By remembering your community in your legacy — by leaving just 5% of your estate to your local community foundation — you will help ensure your community’s future.

Across America rural communities face big challenges as economies change, populations shift, and government resources dramatically decline. Your Goessel Community Foundation offers a solution – a vehicle to help preserve our community’s existing wealth.

Goessel Community Foundation was founded in 2010 by a group of dedicated Goessel citizens to assist in providing resources for a broad range of existing and future charitable needs in the Goessel, Kansas area. The mission of the Goessel Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of educational, cultural, civic and economic life in Goessel both today and in the future by:

  • Enabling donors to fulfill their charitable interests
  • Building a permanent endowment
  • Facilitating prudent management and care of funds
  • Meeting community needs through grants, awards, and  scholarships.
