Legacy Regional Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit philanthropic organization. This means gifts to any fund held with Legacy are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Under our umbrella are numerous funds set up for the benefit of the local area.
The donations that come to Legacy are from local individuals who want to invest in the future of this area. They can give to specific organizations such as a library, hospital or non-profit or earmark their gift for general causes like education or healthcare. Legacy attracts outside organizations such as the Kansas Health Foundation which supports the mission of community foundations and gives them financial support to encourage the growth and sustainability.
We are a member of the Kansas Association of Community Foundations, a collection of more than 60 local foundations in Kansas. Legacy is National Standards-certified through the Councils on Foundations, which signifies a commitment to the highest business practices of policies and accountability.
