Who We Are

Welcome!  Thank you for visiting the Halstead Community Foundation.

The Halstead Community Foundation(HCF) is a public, charitable foundation transforming the Halstead community by making a difference right here at home.

HCF was created in 2010 as an affiliate of the Central Kansas Community Foundation.  Local leaders wanted a vehicle for current, former, and future residents of Halstead to give something back to the community that gave, and continues to give so much to them.

Governed by a board of directors, with a diverse presence in the community, the foundation is working for positive change and is charged by the momentum of key leaders working together.
