About Us

The Parsons Area Community Foundation (PACF) is a unique charity focused on local community improvement through grants and community leadership. Donors have a flexible, accountable, and impactful way to make one-time, repeat and estate-based charitable giftss. We can direct these gifts to support specific charities, a certain area of charitable interest, or to unrestricted funds used by the board for addressing identified community needs. The Foundation is governed by a board of involved citizens committed to improving local quality of life.

You Can Make a Difference!

Through the Community Foundation, your gift may support the charitable cause most important to you, or be pooled with other contributions to impact the community through an annual competitive grant cycle for improvements to health, education, parks, recreation, the arts and social services within 25 miles of Parsons. Our types of funds and donor stories show the many opportunities for giving. Since our inception in 1996, we have invested over $2 million in the Parsons Area

We are a member of the Kansas Association of Community Foundations,www.kansascfs.org, as well as the National Council on Foundations, www.cof.org. Both provide support and counsel to their members. In addition, PACF is a Supporting Organization of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and contracts with them for financial services, legal counsel, and assistance in day to day operations. The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is certified by the Council on Foundations as meeting National Standards for Community Foundations. Through our affiliation, Parsons Area Community Foundation has implemented bylaws, policies and procedures to also meet the National Standards.

The Parsons Area Community Foundation believes the strength of our communities is exemplified by neighbors giving to neighbors to enhance the quality of life in the areas where we live. The Community Foundation provides the opportunity to build on that strength.
