Peabody Community Foundation

The Peabody Community Foundation (PCF), an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation (CKCF), was established in 2000 to assist in providing resources for a broad range of existing and future charitable needs in the Peabody, Kansas, area.

Regardless of how you’re connected to Peabody, you know the benefits of a small community, such as riding a bike or walking around town, enjoying Peabody’s parks and activities at the local pool, and knowing the business owners and your neighbors by name. A small school district offers more accessible teachers, greater opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities and to develop leadership skills.  You may also be aware that small towns such as Peabody have a hard time meeting their financial needs.

The purpose of the PCF grant program is to promote community service and community projects/programs for charitable purpose. PCF awards grants annually to agencies or organizations that qualify as 501(c)(3) entities under the Internal Revenue Service code.  Grant recipients are exempt under state or federal statute (such as educational institutions, churches, cities or counties) or are formally linked to an organization with a qualifying tax. Although PCF has some designated funds in its portfolio, the grants awarded come from undesignated funds.

Whether you are a citizen, a friend, or a high school alum who benefited from living in Peabody and carried those values elsewhere, consider giving to Peabody Community Foundation. 

I truly believe that the world today needs more people who grew up in small towns.
