Strategic Initiatives

Making an Impact

The Wichita Community Foundation is dedicated to making a philanthropic impact in Wichita.

In 2012, the WCF Board of Directors made the strategic decision to narrow the focus of giving from our unrestricted fund and place emphasis on significant investments to further the growth of our city.

WCF researches, studies and creates initiatives that address needs, challenges or potential growth areas in the community. We do not accept open applications for strategic initiative funding.
