Urgent Needs Fund Fund
About This Fund
In an effort to address the needs of area non-profits caused by COVID-19, the Western Kanas Community Foundation, with the support of generous donors, has established the Urgent Needs Fund. The WKCF is seeking your generosity in donating to help support the Urgent Needs Fund. To date the fund has been supported by these local businesses: Black Hills Energy, Keller Leopold Insurance, and Pioneer Communications.
This fund will provide grants to area non-profits to address operating needs as a result of crisis disaster. “While the initial priority is to address immediate needs, additional funds will be released in the next months as fundraising continues," says WKCF’s Executive Director, Conny Bogaard.
