Grants are made possible through funds created by generous contributors who have a heart for western Kansas. The Wichita County Community Foundation provides grants to non-profit organizations with community-based programs in Wichita County. The programs vary from arts, education, development, youth, abuse prevention, to addressing immediate needs for families. The grant program is the heart and soul of the WCCF and is the reason we do what we do.
Each grant request through the WCCF is evaluated on its own merit based on the contents of the application. We are honored to participate in important community issues and strive to expand our services to address specific issues, when consistent with our mission or the wishes of our donors.
Below is the history of our support to the community and to programs within our area. The WCCF has an unrestricted grant-making pool that supports the annual granting cycle as well as endowed and non-endowed donor funds that provide support for charitable organizations which the donors are passionate about.
