The Community Foundation is committed to helping others in times of need

PITTSBURG - The Community Foundation is accepting monetary donations to support relief efforts for areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. We are prepared to send the donations to non profit agencies or partner Community Foundations in the affected areas to assist hurricane vicitims. As in the past, when the Foundation has helped with other national disasters and those closer to home, we take responsibility to link the charitable giving from this region with agencies who are assisting with immediate and the long term impact of the disaster.

When making a donation for this disaster, please make the check payable to: Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas. On the memo line specify: “Hurricane Harvey”. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 1448, Pittsburg, KS 66762-1448 or dropped by the office located at 100 South Broadway, Suite 100, Pittsburg. Donations may also be made online at southeastkansas.org by selecting our Disaster Relief Fund or by calling 620-231-8897, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Donations are tax deductible.

Contact Kit Parks at the Foundation office for any questions regarding donations or establishing funds for specific needs.
