Think about what matters to you in our community. 

The church where you worship.  The schools your children attend.  The park where your grandchildren love to play.  A local charity you care deeply about.  How can you ensure that these important places and services endure for future generations? 

Legacy Regional Community Foundation also cares about these institutions. Let us help you through three simple steps - GIVE, GROW, and GRANT.

Here’s how it works:

Make a donation to Legacy for the benefit of the eligible organization between September 18 – October 10, 2023 by sending a check to Legacy, PO Box 713, Winfield, KS 67156, delivering to our offices at 1216 Main in Winfield or donating online

“One Gift | Twice the Impact” on September 18 - October 10, holds an incredible opportunity for eligible organizations with endowments.  During that time, Legacy Regional Community Foundation will match up to $3,500 in donations (and maybe more) made to eligible organization endowment funds - their long-term savings – thanks to a generous gift from Patterson Family Foundation.

We are asking for you to dig deep, beyond what you give to our annual campaign.


Building endowments is critical for our future, but we still face monthly expenses.  So we need your ongoing support.  “One Gift | Twice the Impact” is a unique opportunity to grow our endowment exponentially, so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact, for years to come.

Establishing a fund with Legacy provides permanent support to organizations and projects in our community.  Legacy accepts a wide variety of assets and can facilitate complex forms of giving while offering maximum tax advantages.  We can also partner with your professional advisors.  Let us get to know you, manage the details and help you achieve your charitable purpose!  Through Legacy, donors generously gave over $657,000 in 2022.

Legacy focuses on stewardships of your gifts.  The foundation multiplies the impact of your donation by pooling your giving with other gifts and grants.  Legacy leverages "buying power" to earn investment income, enabling a gift to make a greater impact than it could on its own.  In 2022, Legacy assets were over $9.1 million.

Grants and scholarships to charitable causes are distributed from foundation investment earnings.  Legacy works in the community to aid nonprofit organizations, monitor economic conditions, identify social needs, and produce sustainable solutions to community challenges. In 2022, because of YOU, over $687,000 was awarded to benefit our region.
