The Kearney Area Community Foundation was established in 1995 to provide an umbrella organization to assist grassroots groups to “do good things” in the area. Today, we manage $15.3 million in assets and oversee more than 160 different funds for programs. We are very proud of the fact that the Foundation has reinvested more than $33.2 million in grants, scholarships and program support back into the community since our inception. That is the true philosophy of a progressive community foundation – not only do we grow our endowments, but we also make sure money flows back into the community to improve our quality of life.
