CKCF Disaster Donor Services

Welcome to the Disaster Support webpage for the CKCF service area, sponsored by the Central Kansas Community Foundation. We research and vet charitable organizations that are currently taking donations for national and local natural and situational disaster events. Donations to these organizations are safe and tax deductible to the extent of the law.

In addition, should there be a crisis or natural disaster in Harvey County or the surrounding service area, we will post information here and provide a tax deductible means for you to support your community and any victims through charitable giving.
