Emporia Community Foundation welcomed in the community for an open house Tuesday.


The Community Foundation has moved from the fifth floor at 527 Commercial to the first floor. Director Becky Jeppesen told KVOE News the new layout is far more efficient for work.

Jeppesen said the new layout of rooms gives the Community Foundation team flexibility to meet with patrons individually or even in large groups. Jeppesen says anyone interested in setting up a fund is just a phone call away.

The Community Foundation administers better than 160 so-called component funds to help improve the quality of life in Emporia, Lyon County and surrounding counties. It now manages over $23 million in accumulated assets, with donors creating funds for various needs and grant projects worth more $10 million.

To find out more or contact the Community Foundation, call 342-9304 or go online to www.emporiacf.org.
