Since 1987 the KAFCS Foundation has been an integral part of our association.
The Foundation was created through the vision and hard work of many of our
members and it has developed and grown through the ongoing support of KAFCS
members who have generously shared their time, talents, and money.
The purpose of the Foundation is to support the mission and leadership goals
of KAFCS. The KAFCS Foundation provides funds annually for many activities
of the association including the following:
Yearly awards and recognition presented to individuals by the Association.
This includes the plaques as well as monetary awards and assistance for our
Teacher of the Year to compete for the national Teacher of the Year award.
A scholarship for our outstanding high school student and a scholarship
for a community college student transferring to a Kansas four-year college
with a FACS major.
Stipends for students and first-time professionals to attend AAFCS meetings.
In addition some support has been given to KAFCS members to attend other
national conferences so that they could bring the important information
back to our membership.
