What We Do
Inspiring Vision & Generosity
In order to better our lives, we must better where we spend our lives. For us, that’s Derby, Kansas! This is why the Derby Community Foundation was established; helping our community and its citizens raise a shared standard of excellence in all we do. The spirit of the Derby Community Foundation is refreshing and invigorating. Its contagious persistence brings together people who yearn to share a vision and have the courage to do something about it.
The Derby Community Foundation has supported community improvement projects within our city since the Foundation’s inception in 1993. In that time, the Derby Community Foundation has established a reputation within our community for providing great enhancements. Some of the accomplishments of the Derby Community Foundation are listed below.
Community Enrichment Grants
We have awarded nearly $500,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations. Our Community Enrichment Grants expand the Foundation’s support to a broad range of organizations throughout the Derby area. The Foundation awards up to $10,000 annually.
Whenever there is a need the Derby Community Foundation has answered the call, and that call has been everything that we’ve ever asked for.
