Our History

The Post Rock Community Foundation was founded on February 1, 2010, to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving benefiting the entire Lincoln County community and those served by USD 298 and USD 299. The Foundation is a permanent source of charitable assets to meet both emerging and existing needs of the local communities.

The Post Rock Community Foundation evolved from the Sylvan Area Foundation. The Sylvan Area Foundation was started in 2002 and served primarily as an annual fundraising organization to serve the geographical area of the Sylvan Unified School District. After several years, the Sylvan Area Foundation’s Board of Directors made the decision to terminate the Foundation in order to start an endowment foundation that would be able to serve not only the needs of today, but also the needs of the future. The decision was also made to affiliate with the Greater Salina Community Foundation and increase the service area to include all of Lincoln County and those served by USD 298 and USD 299.

The Foundation believes that as a community we are stronger than we are as individuals. This belief is reflected in our rope logo.

“The idea of a rope– individual fibers braided together to make a stronger whole– inspired this design. The same principle applies in a community: many individuals and groups working together to do what cannot be done alone. The Community Foundation provides a ‘rope’ for this area, enabling projects and furthering creative ideas that might unravel without community help and support.”
– Pamela Harris, Designer

The Post Rock Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Greater Salina Community Foundation in Salina, Kansas. The Greater Salina Community Foundation was established in 1999 and is led by Executive Director, Bill Grevas. Currently, the Greater Salina Community Foundation hosts 12 regional affiliate foundations and has more than $150 million in assets, including its affiliate assets.
