For Giving


We invite you to become part of the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas



The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas is a regional community foundation serving the southeast corner of the state.   As an affiliate of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, we are able to share with our donors the benefits of working with a larger foundation while still providing a local link to the area. 



Whether you are interested in giving now or planning a future gift, we will work with you to make a difference for the charities you care most about.  Discover the options for investing in your community through the Foundation and DONATE NOW!

States across the country are experiencing an unprecedented transfer of wealth as estates change hands from one generation to the next. By 2025 in Kansas alone the transfer of wealth is estimated to be $67 billion, and will increase to $1.16 trillion by 2070.

Many people designate their entire estate to their children. As more people leave the communities where they were raised, much of the inherited wealth leaves, too. The Keep 5 in Kansas campaign aims to capture 5% of the estate wealth, which could give back $58 billion to Kansas communities over the next 50 years.
