CKCF Public/Private Partnership with Harvey County Commission Commendable

In March, the Harvey County Commission in coordination with County Administrator Anthony Schwartzendruber, took decisive action to partner with Central Kansas Community Foundation, giving a donation in the amount of $50,000 to support the citizens of Harvey County during COVID-19.

Harvey County has placed trust in the Foundation to seek out need among residents and be the response entity for charities, thereby reducing the burden of government. The Foundation has opened a grant cycle specifically for Harvey County COVID-19 relief efforts and have to date, funded nearly $25,000 in grants to charities. Projects include securing PPE for front-line workers, providing for food and sanitation supplies, assistance for telemedicine establishment and assisting with increased administrative needs among charities in Harvey County.

By investing in the Foundation’s work, the Commission has essentially made all taxpayers in Harvey County partners in COVID relief work.  Every citizen has an investment in reaching their most vulnerable friend and neighbor – something to be very proud of.
