Initiatives & Impact

Just like you, Hutchinson Community Foundation is passionate about making a difference in the Hutchinson and Reno County area.

We’ve been working for more than 30 years to bring changemakers together around pressing issues:

Identify Needs

We keep our ear to the ground for new areas of need, and we work to support them with grants from the Fund for Hutchinson.

Connect Donors

We connect our donors with these types of opportunities, so they can support issues that otherwise might not receive adequate funding.

Create Solutions

We work closely with nonprofits and other stakeholders to create innovative solutions to challenging problems, so our community benefits in the strongest way possible.

Areas of Focus

Early Childhood

Giving children a strong start—from birth—is one of the Foundation’s highest priorities. We make and manage grants that fund activities including social/emotional screening, parenting education and preschool programs.

Nutrition/ Physical Activity

Hutchinson Community Foundation believes nutrition & physical activity are foundational to a healthy, happy, and prosperous community. That’s why we support the work of organizations looking to make long-term systemic changes related to food policy, health care, active transportation, and many other health-related causes.


Nonprofit Sustainability

Important community issues are being addressed through the work of our dedicated and knowledgeable local nonprofits. Hutchinson Community Foundation strives to be a connector, guide, and resource for these organizations.

Family Economic Success

Hutchinson Community Foundation proudly supports the work of organizations and nonprofits that address issues related to Family Economic Success. Knowing how crucial this area of focus is to our community, we look to fund these initiatives through our annual grants.

Youth Philanthropy Council
