Description
FOR THE LOVE OF NORTHWEST KANSAS The Dane G. Hansen Foundation was established in 1965 with a generous estate gift from Dane G. Hansen. Mr. Hansen was an entrepreneur whosebusiness interests over the course of his life included, among others, retail, lumber, road and bridge construction and oil. Reflecting Mr. Hansen’s lifelong love of Northwest Kansas, the charitable foundation that bears his name has a mission to improve the quality of life for the residents and the communities in the 26 counties that make up the northwest quarter of Kansas. Based in Mr. Hansen’s hometown of Logan, Kansas, the Foundation is governed by a board of seven Trustees. Applications are received year-round and grants are awarded monthly to benefit Northwest Kansas and its residents. In addition, the Foundation has a robust scholarship program, awarding 280 scholarships, both new and renewing, each year, totaling more than $2.5 million. Annual grants and scholarships total in the range of $16 to $17 million. OUR MISSION The Dane G.

Community Social Services & Security: Residents need access to social services for individuals with special needs or those who are in crisis. Communities need support systems to provide community disaster relief and respond to emergencies. Conservation & Environment: Preservation and an appreciation of our natural environment, including maintaining high air and water quality, are critical with regard to both economic and social future of northwest Kansas.
