Emergency Relief Assistance - COVID-19
The WCF Emergency Fund provides immediate organizational emergency relief assistance to nonprofit organizations in the Wichita and Sedgwick County areas. At this time, priority is being given to nonprofits directly dealing with the prevention and spread of the COVID-19 virus.
While the situation is changing daily, we are not currently providing assistance for the following situations:
- Basic operations
- Capital improvements
- Lost revenue from planned fundraisers
Applications are available online only. This allows staff to fully assess the scope of the request.
All applicants to the WCF Emergency Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation must be in good standing with the Kansas Secretary of State’s office, must be currently exempt under IRS Section 501(c)(3), and classified as an organization to which contributions are deductible under Section 170(c)(2), normally a public charity under Section 509(a). For-profit organizations are not eligible for this assistance.
Funding sources are limited. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis, and the WCF Grants Committee will be assessing those applications weekly.
