Your Partner in Community Philanthropy

History

Wamego Community Foundation (“WCF” or “Foundation”) received its tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation from the IRS in October of 1998. The formation of the WCF created an efficient mechanism through which individuals, families, corporations, other non-profit organizations, and private foundations could make gifts to benefit the Wamego community and region. The first grants to community nonprofit agencies were awarded from endowed funds in 2000.
