About Us
KCSL Foundation


Incorporated as a Kansas not-for-profit corporation in March 1998, the Kansas Children’s Service League Foundation (KCSL Foundation) is an independent 501(c)(3) governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of 10-50 members who each serve a 2-year term. Meetings are held quarterly with an annual meeting of the KCSL Foundation Board of Trustees in April each year.

KCSL Foundation’s mission is to grow and protect our assets along with advocating and providing financial support for the well-being of the children of Kansas consistent with the mission of Kansas Children’s Service League (KCSL). We build lifelong connections and partnerships with individuals, corporations and foundations to secure, invest and steward private financial support. The KCSL Foundation works collaboratively with KCSL to expand its support base by:
  • Investing and stewarding the endowment and all gift funds to best ensure
    a sustainable, growing level of support for KCSL;
  • Recruiting and retaining high-quality, expert and committed Trustees to work
    to advance the mission and vision of KCSL;
  • Enhancing KCSL’s long-term relationships with donors, corporate partners,
    legislators and community partners; and
  • Increasing the value or future value of the KCSL Foundation.

The KCSL Foundation’s assets are approximately $5 million. The investments are managed under guidelines established by the Finance Committee and approved by the Board of Trustees.
