Friends of the Flint Hills Fund

The Friends of the Flint Hills Fund is now officially affiliated with the Kansas Rural Communities Foundation. Click on Affiliates, left navigation bar; click on Friends of the Flint Hills; and click on to donate to the Fund. I used option 3, to download a printable pdf donation form, added my check for $100, and sent it off to Wamego by mail (this saves $5 for use of a credit card). However, if making an online contribution using a credit card works better for you, please do so!

This blog typically has 25 readers a day. If you enjoy this blog, and the effort I put into providing this service to the Kansas Flint Hills, I urge you to consider a contribution to the Friends of the Flint Hills Fund to further the educational opportunities that can be provided. These donations are tax deductible to you personally. If each of my 25 readers, today, made a contribution of $100 - the fund would grow by $2500! We are working with several other foundations to obtain a matching grant of $1 grant for each $1 donation - so, that would cause your donation to grow to $5,000! That is helping a lot of school-age youngsters, perhaps, be able to visit the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve for a day, for example, that might never see it and take part in the educational programming there, otherwise.

A portion of the funds may be used for programming of a Heritage Area. Another portion may be dedicated to assisting senior citizens to partner with the youth in better understanding of the importance of preserving and maintaining the Kansas Flint Hills for future generations. Do you have other ideas for the Committee overseeing the Fund? Let me know, and I'll be happy to share them with the committee.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
