The Caring Community Foundation (CCF) is about connecting, growing and giving – growing funds for the future of our local communities and connecting donors to needs they care about, right here at home. The CCF was initiated in 2015 to serve the general geographic area of Pottawatomie, Marshall, Nemaha and Jackson Counties in Kansas. From its inception, the Foundation has been busy pursuing its action-oriented vision: Enhancing Vibrant Communities!
As a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity accepted by the IRS, the Caring Community Foundation is an independent entity created to fill the need for a local organization to support local charitable causes. As a community foundation, the CCF can help support a wide variety of charitable causes for individuals, families, organizations and communities. Whether you are interested in education, healthcare, sports, agriculture, community support, or something else, contributing to the Foundation can make a difference for the cause dearest to you!
