The Bird City Century II Development Foundation, Inc. was founded on December 17, 1985 with remaining funds from the Bird City centennial celebration earlier that year. The Foundation was organized for the betterment and benefit of the Bird City community, and continues to function as such.
In 2009, the Bird City Century II Development Foundation became an affiliate of the Greater Northwest Kansas Community Foundation, an organization exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, a public charity under section 509(a)(3), a supporting organization, and a non-profit corporation organized in the state of Kansas.
With this designation, the Foundation is a supporting organization of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. The board of directors took these steps to ensure the future of the Foundation as a community foundation. With this relationship GKCCF assists the Foundation with back office and legal support.
The Bird City Century II Development Foundation is a community foundation which represents an opportunity for all friends of the Bird City community to give, through philanthropy, back to the Bird City community to enhance and ensure the quality of life for present and future generations of Bird City.
