GIVE – to Improve Life in Northwest Kansas
The Dane G. Hansen Foundation understands the importance of giving locally in Northwest Kansas. The Trustees have spearheaded the NW KANSAS GIVES initiative with 26 counties in the Dane G. Hansen Foundation service area to provide resources to assist foundations and their donors to help secure the future of Northwest Kansas communities.
Between 2020 and 2064, nearly $30 billion dollars will transfer from one generation to the next in the 26 counties of NW Kansas. The opportunity to capture a portion of that wealth is a remarkable one, and the time is now.
Most intergenerational wealth transfer will go to heirs, many or most of whom will take their inheritance with them to a home outside of NW Kansas. If, as a generation, 95% of Baby Boomer estates in NW Kansas went to children or family, heirs would be well cared for. If the remaining 5% went to our local communities, the future for NW Kansas would be forever changed.
NW Kansas Gives represents an effort to educate NW Kansas residents and encourage thoughtful, planned charitable gifts as a part of overall estate planning.
