Ways To Give

There are TONS of ways to give and get involved at the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation!

KFF is a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization. Donations made to KFF may be tax deductible!


Special Projects

The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation is always working to fulfill our purpose of furthering the renovation, construction, preservation and beautification of the Kansas State Fairgrounds. This means that we regularly have large and exciting projects in the works. The Capper Project was a historic project that was completed in 2023.

Projects on the Horizon

We are always looking to the future! The next projects coming soon include the Fountain House Rennovation (which you can be a part of with the T.A.G. Program! See below), the Bison Building Ag Innovation Center and the 1861 Club.

T.A.G. : Together Achieving Greatness

The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation T.A.G. Team Program wants to bring like-minded, Fair-loving individuals together to accomplish small renovation projects on the historic Kansas State Fairgrounds.

The goal is to engage 500 donors to make an immediate, positive and direct impact by tackling the renovation of the Fountain House located next to the Lair-Steckline Interactive Water Fountain. For a minimum $250 donation, the first 500 supporters will be accepted into this unique group. It is a simple concept: Together we can Achieve Greatness, creatively establishing the T.A.G. Team!

Boots and Bling

Boots and Bling is the signature event of the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation and has developed the reputation for being the best FUNdraising party in Kansas. Held annually in August, it is filled with music, fun, live and silent auction opportunities, and great food and drinks! You can join the party – all in your cowboys Boots with a little Bling!

Table sponsorships have sold out quickly each year, so be sure to reserve your table today so that you don’t miss out on all the fun! GEM level sponsorships provide additional benefits and include one or more tables depending on the level of sponsorship. Consider a GEM level sponsorship for more BLING and more FUN!

Foundation Benches

Foundation Benches are a beautiful way to pay tribute towards a loved one. A tribute doesn’t always require a loss of life. While it is wonderful to memorialize your loved ones, sometimes it’s great to appreciate the life of someone still with us, including for an anniversary, a birthday, or even a celebration for new beginnings. Just like the Fair, these benches serve as a reminder that the best memories are shared.

Most Needed Donation

The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation provides support to numerous and various projects on the Kansas State Fairgrounds each year. Make your donation for the  general support of the Foundation and allow your donation to be used where most needed.

Grow the Fair

Legacy/Planned Giving

The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation is working to establish endowment funds to provide for ongoing financial support of the Kansas State Fair. Established endowments grow over time and provide for permanent funding that enables more effective strategic planning for the future and ensures that the Kansas State Fair infrastructure will be maintained and improved for generations to come. Anyone can contribute to the Grow the Fair endowed funds with a gift of any size. There are many ways to make a gift, including:
  • Cash
  • Bequest in will
  • Outright gift of stock and/or real estate
  • Life income gifts
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Gifts of retirement assets
A charitable bequest in a will is the most common gift as it is flexible, revocable and allows you to control your assets during your lifetime. Annuities and certain trusts can provide an income stream plus tax benefits, as can a gift that provides current income from the endowment fund while preserving your estate’s value for heirs.

We encourage you to seek the advice of a financial planning advisor before making any decisions about your estate. The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation staff is also available to answer any questions. Please email info@KsFgF.org for more information.

You may use the Future Gift Intent Form below whenever you are ready. The form may be filled out online or printed off to fill out manually. You may mail the completed form to the address on the bottom of the form, or email it to info@KsFgF.org.
