Community Foundation of Wyandotte County

The Community Foundation of Wyandotte County offers a better way to give. You can establish a charitable fund quickly and easily, and for a fee of as little as $21 a month. And because we streamline the giving process, there’s no chasing down receipts or check stubs at tax time. Instead, you’ll get a simple statement showing how much you gave and to which organizations. Allowing you more time to focus on what’s really important.

Each fund under the Community Foundation’s umbrella furthers the charitable causes that matter most to the donors who established the fund. What’s important to our donors is important to us. Sometimes donors ask the Community Foundation for advice about smart charitable investments that can leverage the greatest good for the future of our region, which is why we engage in community leadership work.

How can I get involved?

Organize your generosity through a personal, family, or corporate fund at the Community Foundation, and you decide when and where to give. Need a tax deduction now, but unsure of exactly which charities you wish to support? No problem! Make a tax-deductible transfer of cash or stock to your fund to secure your tax deduction. Then relax and take your time deciding how you'd like to invest your charitable dollars. Get your family involved. Check out your options by researching the results your favorite organizations are achieving in the community. Build a plan for your charitable gifts in 2010 and beyond.

Get involved in a giving circle or rally your friends and family around your favorite cause and start your own! Giving circles pool smaller donations together to make larger gifts. Contact us to learn more or to connect with giving circles that share your interests.

Pass on the spirit of giving by purchasing a Giving Card for a birthday, holiday or any special occasion. Giving Cards are similar to retail gift cards but they are redeemed to benefit any 501(c)(3) public charity in the United States including churches, schools and synagogues. Your Giving Card purchase is tax deductible and the cards will be mailed to the address provided. Please allow three days for processing.

Help Wyandotte Countians in need by giving to the many charities and religious organizations providing various services throughout the region. For more in-depth information, visit the Community Foundation's Nonprofit Search.
