Golden Belt Community Foundation's mission is to plan, work, and invest today for a more secure, improved, and better tomorrow. Established in 1996, Golden Belt Community Foundation (GBCF) exists to provide non-profit organizations in central Kansas with a permanent source of support and to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving for donors. We serve the counties of Barton, Pawnee, Rush and Stafford. We believe the strength of our communities is the same today as it was in the early years. That strength is exemplified in neighbors giving to neighbors to enhance the quality of life of the communities in which we live. GBCF provides the opportunity to build on that strength.
