Our Roadmap for Community Impact
We’ve come a long way since 1986 – the founding year of the Wichita Community Foundation – to fuel transformational change. Now, with recharged priorities, we’re ready to accelerate our work into overdrive.
In 2021, we embraced a new strategic framework to guide our work into the future – a five-year roadmap that requires us to be bold, inclusive and responsive to the needs in our community. Our framework is a process pioneered by WCF Board of Directors and staff with guidance from our facilitating partners, Ekstrom Alley Clontz & Associates.
By 2025, we have our sights set to holistically grow our charitable muscle with enduring philanthropy for all who call Wichita home.
Our strategic vision is to...
Ignite Wichitans to cultivate community transformation infused with thoughtful philanthropy
These four strategic priorities will chart a path for our leadership, grantmaking and community support for the next five years:
|Reenergize Giving||Reengage Generosity|
|Reimagine Philanthropy||Remake Systems|
Yes, these are audacious goals and there’s lots of work to be done. But, we’re confident our new framework will improve our operations, accelerate actions, inform solutions and enhance our region’s opportunity to thrive.
We invite you to join us on this journey of personal and community transformation. Flip through our strategic framework below to learn more about our vision and how you can help build a better Wichita.
