Keep 5 in Bourbon County

By making Keep 5 in Kansas work for Bourbon County, we can turn our hopes for the future into a reality. If everyone designates 5% of their estate to the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation (FSACF), our hometown needs can be met continually. Offering a broad range of fund options, the FSACF accepts a variety of assets. With everyone’s help, we can create a permanent source of funding for local charities.
