Chanute Community Foundation

The Chanute Community Foundation is a means to improve the quality of life of the residents in Chanute.


Since our certification in 2009, we have raised around $24,000. This has been attained through the transfer of funds from a former Organ Donor find, donations, fundraising dinners and drawings and athletic events. We have aided 10 families with funeral expenses, medical expenses, memorials and travel expenses to out of town doctors and hospitals. We have three different applications. One each for education scholarships, local entities and individual and families. The advantage to keeping our foundation limits to our own city is to process the application with immediacy and help those in need quickly.
