Benefits of Giving

Your charitable giving options are virtually unlimited with the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation. We take into account both your charitable interests and your personal needs.Then we identify your opportunities.Together, we can develop a plan that makes your philanthropic vision a reality.Creating a fund with the FSACF gives you some distinct advantages:

Simplicity: One gift to the FSACF can be used by the donor to provide support for a wide range of charitable organizations and interests.

Flexibility: If a charitable organization ceases to exist or if the intended purpose of a donor's gift becomes unnecessary, the FSACF will ensure that the gift continues to be used for purposes that are consistent with the donor's intentions. Also, the size of a fund can be increased at any time through additional gifts.

Professional Management: High caliber professional investment management provided by our affiliation with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation provides for greater growth and lower costs, which allows larger charitable distributions.

Accountability: As a community foundation, the FSACF is dedicated to serving the public interest.Through our affiliation with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, an audit of our funds is conducted annually. Additionally, our affiliate, the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas, hires a local accounting firm to conduct an Agreed Upon Procedures review of our most active funds on an annual basis.
