Enhancing the Quality of Life in Wichita County
Established in 2002, the Wichita County Community Foundation exists to provide non-profit organizations in Wichita County with a permanent source of support and to serve as a “vehicle” for charitable giving for donors.
The Foundation is governed and administered by a volunteer board of directors and is designed to accommodate the philanthropic wishes, special concerns and interests of donors. The board is responsible for oversight of the Foundation and that a reasonable rate of return is achieved on all funds entrusted to its care.
WCCF helps grow philanthropy by providing a vehicle for individuals, families and businesses to give back to the community through donor advised, designated, filed of interest and other charitable tools. Returns on the Foundation’s pool of unrestricted funds are granted yearly and used to award competitive grants to support nonprofit organizations and charitable entities.
The Wichita County Community Foundation has created a place for those wishing to donate to our community, to raise funds, create scholarships, and make memorials or endowments. All funds will be used in helping the citizens of Wichita County for generations to come.
