Kansas Historical Foundation - About us
The Kansas Historical Foundation is an IRS determined 501(c)(3) non-profit and serves as the fund raising, fund management, membership, and retail organization to support and promote Kansas history through the work of the Kansas Historical Society, a state agency.
There are many ways you can help the Kansas history cause to ensure our rich legacy is preserved for future generations:
The foundation is governed by a board of between 36 and 90 directors, who each serve a three-year term. Three directors are appointed by the governor of Kansas and the remaining are elected from among the members of the Kansas Historical Foundation at an annual meeting held each November. The board is led by an 18 member executive committee. The honorary board includes individuals who have significantly contributed to Kansas history. Members of the board provide financial, legal, and ethical oversight of the organization and enhance its public standing.
Kansas Historical Foundation and the Kansas Historical Society, the state agency, both publish annual reports that can be viewed online.
The Kansas Historical Foundation holds two meetings per year for the entire membership of the organization.
