Hello from the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation (FSACF)! We exist to help you support the charitable causes that matter to you in an effective, enduring, and tax-efficient way.

FSACF was launched in 2007 by a visionary group of local residents with the help of the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas (CFSEK). Since then, we’ve given more than $290,000 in grants in support of local nonprofit organizations and charitable causes. We are a CFSEK affiliate and a member of the Kansas Association of Community Foundations.
