A campaign makes it easy for your employees to make philanthropic contributions through payroll deduction, and have fun while doing it. There are also opportunities for staff to gain leadership experience and work with other departments.

Your campaign will support needed local programs and initiatives in the areas of health, education, financial stability and basic needs. Together, we make Wichita and surrounding communities a better place to live, work and play.
