New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and engaging in traditions together.

A new year brings new opportunities and a fresh start. As mentioned in the Catholic Digest, 'January is an opportunity to improve not just your health or your spending habits, but your spiritual life as well'.

We welcome you to join us in embracing all that 2020 has to offer, including our relationship with God.

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God" Micah 6:8

CFNEK: Donor Advised Funds

Charitable donations may be more complicated under the tax law. Many CPAs and tax attorneys recommend a strategy of 'bundling' deductible gifts into alternate years. One way to bundle charitable gifts, according to your Catholic values, is through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) with the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas. For more information, click here, or call 913-647-3062

CFNEK: Outgoing Board Members

We closed out 2019 by saying thank you and farewell to two of our board members, Sharon Weems and B.J. Hickert. Both Sharon and B.J. joined the CFNEK Board of Directors in January 2014. Since then, they have been thoroughly committed to CFNEK serving in chair positions and on many committees. 

Sharon served as #iGiveCatholic Chair and Board Development Chair while participating in the Marketing, Board Development, and Investment Finance Committees during her six years.

B.J. served as Board Development Chair and Marketing Committee Chair, while participating in the Board Development, Marketing, and Continuing Education Program Committees.

Many of our programs and initiatives were successful due to their commitment and expertise. We are grateful Sharon and B.J. dedicated their time and professional talent to our foundation as members of the board.
