About the Foundation
Cheyenne County Kansas Community Foundation became an affiliate of Greater Northwest Kansas Community Foundation in December 2017. An affiliate is a collection of community funds to increase philanthropic giving in a geographic area. Both endowed and non-endowed funds are developed to provide financial support to 501(c)(3) and other qualifying nonprofit organizations for charitable purposes to benefit area residents.
The foundation was formerly the St. Francis Community Foundation formed in 2007. The Foundation serves as a ‘savings account’ for the good of Cheyenne County; “building the foundation of tomorrow” through financial gifts today. The Foundation provides an avenue for donors to give to for projects, county-wide or community specific needs, and personalized giving that best suits the donor’s wishes.
