About the Foundation

The Thomas County Community Foundation is a public, nonprofit organization with 501 (c) (3) status that pools the resources of many donors and focuses grant making efforts in Thomas County, Kansas. Board of directors and staff of the foundation seek to build permanently endowed funds, using the interest generated for charitable, community betterment. The Thomas County Community Foundation accepts and administers a diversity of gift and fundy types to meet the varied philanthropic objectives of donors. With a dual role of being a catalyst for community betterment, TCCF also serves donors in carrying out their philanthropic intentions, within applicable laws and regulations. The foundation provides flexibility, offering many types of funds, with varying donor involvement, including donor anonymity, if desired.

History

TCCF was founded by four local citizens in February 2001. The task before them was daunting: to raise $300,000 before December 31 for that year. With the addition of more members to the Board of Directors, the Thomas County Community Foundation was able to raise the funds, and thus received a matching grant from the Kansas Health Foundation. Since that time, the foundation has grown to encompass additional funds for granting purposes to area non-profit organizations. Providing resources and funding to benefit Thomas County residents, the community foundation is proud to serve the citizens of Thomas County

Public Availability of Information

As a public entity, the Thomas County Community Foundation maintains the utmost integrity. While the TCCF is not required by the State of Kansas to follow the Kansas Open Records Act, the Foundation feels that in order to demonstrate integrity for public honesty in all practices, most documents at the Foundation are available for public scrutiny. However, there are some documents that are not meant for public viewing in order to maintain donor confidentiality, including minutes of meetings. These documents or pieces of information include donor names and contact information, donation amounts tied to specific donor names, and most other information concerning donors. Some documents that are able to be viewed by the public and are available upon request include our audit information, a board of directors list, our budget, investment policy, other information concerning investment practices, IRS Form 990, letter of determination, a list of funds, a list of grants given by the TCCF, our mission and purpose of the foundation and other policies and procedures.

Donor Advised Funds (DAF’s)

Donors receive charitable gift receipts for the contributions to their established DAF.  The fund is normally named in someone’s memory or established as a “Family Fund”, however, the donor(s) may personalize as they wish.  The donor(s) are setup as the advisors to their Fund, which allows them to make all grant recommendations from their DAF.  Grant recommendations must be to qualifying charitable 501(c)(3) organizations, educational, government or religious entities per IRS rules.  The donor(s) may name succeeding generations as successor advisors or transition it to the Foundation to advise over upon donor(s) death.
