Overview:

The value of the nonprofit sector has immeasurable impact in Wichita. Professional development is often overlooked in this sector. Magnify invites fundraising professionals to enhance their skills and create important connections with fellow Wichitans.

Fund Intent

Magnify increases the potential for career advancement and development for nonprofits and the individuals who serve these organizations. The program supports professional seminars and training opportunities not covered by normal operating expenses for Wichita area nonprofits. 

What We Fund

Grant Details

  • One staff member per organization can apply
  • Selected grantees can attend only one of the three trainings currently offered
  • Grantees may only attend the dates/trainings specified by WCF
  • Reasonable expenses for tuition, travel, lodging and meals will be covered

All grants are awarded at the discretion of the Grants Committee, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors of the Wichita Community Foundation.
