About this grant

The program goal is to encourage community foundations to advance the Sustainable Development Goals at the local level. To this end, the Kansas Association of Community Foundations will prominently include content on the Sustainable Development Goals and their adoption by community foundations at its annual national Growing Community Foundations Conference. This grant will support a panel of experts and community foundation practitioners at the conference’s opening plenary as well as another breakout session. The grantee will also add a module on the goals used by community foundations to their CFExpressTraining online resource. Founded in 2005, the Kansas Association of Community Foundations strengthens and promotes community philanthropy in Kansas, educates its members and others on effective philanthropic operations and fosters collaboration and the exchange of information regarding philanthropic programs and issues.
