Creating a Legacy - The Evolution of a Field of Interest Fund

If you have a passion for a cause, a Field of Interest Fund may be a good choice for your investments, regardless of how narrow or broad. As the name implies, this type of Fund allows you to choose an area that interests you without tying your giving to a specific organization.

Professional Advisors can earn continuing education credits and a thorough overview of estate planning and the probate process at THCF's latest Professional Advisor Seminar.

Library Giving Day

Library Giving Day is a global day of giving on April 6 when those of us who believe in libraries and literacy come together to support our local library systems.

Create a Legacy - Keeping it Simple

If you are looking for a simple way to continue your charitable giving beyond your lifetime, then leaving a charitable bequest in your will or trust may be a good option. A bequest is an easy and very flexible way to distribute your financial assets and real estate to your heirs – and to charity as well.

Give Smart - Investing in Youth

There are many ways to support the student leaders in our Youth Advisory Council (YAC). You could shop at one of the participating Hy-Vee grocery stores on April 9 and help students collect 40,000 food and household items for distribution in our communities. You could become a sponsor or order tickets to attend their Wheels and Reels drive-in fundraiser on April 30, featuring E.T. Or, you could become a member of the Foundation's annual Fan Club.

Making Life Better. One Grant at a Time.

Heston studied dance and loved it. He believed that he could make a living as a dance teacher. Mabel was talented in music and drama. It was a fortuitous union: Mabel provided piano accompaniment for Heston’s dance students and developed dramatic presentations to showcase their abilities. Mabel also taught music and dramatics.

YAC on the Farm

The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) program is designed to help area high schoolers understand what philanthropy is and how, through philanthropy, they can have a positive impact on their communities. Annie Crawford was recruited to join YAC during her sophomore year at Blue Springs High School.
