“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” Wise words spoken by Nelson Henderson. It fits so well with the mission of the Central Kansas Community Foundation to build stronger communities through charitable giving. Hence, the reason we are entering into a two-year campaign to raise money to support our regional effort in Central Kansas and Grow Your Community.

Be a Part of the Impact
We proudly serve 19 affiliate foundations in a 6-county region.
In 2018, CKCF granted more than $1M to charitable causes in that region.
About the CKCF Benevolence & Beyond Effort
As part of our larger Benevolence & Beyond effort, we are launching the Growing Your Community Campaign. Your gift to our CKCF Community Impact Operations Fund as part of our campaign ensures we immediately have the resources to serve our Affiliates with quality back office support and expertise, our Donors with exemplary service, and local charities with technical and financial support for causes that matter by upgrading accounting systems and other service tools.
Your gift to our Community Operating Endowment is always welcomed. Gifts to this fund will support our service for the long term. We know we will be here for future generations and the Community Operating Endowment will ensure resources are here, so we can serve our communities for next year; 10 years from now; and even 50 years and more down the road.
Your gift will help guide the first phase of implementation of our needed advancements in 2020, while we strive to meet our full goal of $100,000 by the end of 2020.
Thank you for your generosity as together we are building a better today and a stronger tomorrow across Central Kansas.
