The generous support of people like you helps make the City of Lenexa a special place to live, work and play.

Established in 2017, The Lenexa Foundation accepts donations on behalf of the City of Lenexa. Your contribution supports a variety of work and is tax deductible as allowed by law (please consult your tax adviser).

The purpose of The Lenexa Foundation is to support community beautification and maintenance, promote social welfare, promote environmental conservation, advance education and science, and promote the arts.

You can make an unrestricted gift to the foundation which will be used to support a current program priority or direct your contribution to a specific fund. The six funds currently established include:

  • Arts Fund – helps promote visual and performing arts within the City, including gallery exhibits, performers, awards and scholarship programs.

  • Fire Public Safety Fund – supports the mission of the Lenexa Fire Department.

  • Memorials Fund – contributions honor and memorialize loved ones, individuals and agencies through public memorials such as park benches, trees, flower beds and shelters.

  • Parks and Recreation Fund – supports parks and recreation programs, including the purchase or maintenance of park amenities and landscaping and the funding of recreation programs.

  • Police Public Safety Fund – supports the mission of the Lenexa Police Department.

  • Special Events Fund – helps promote special events and festivals within the City.

Due to the possible appearance of a conflict of interest, contributions will not be accepted from any person or entity that has any unresolved, pending application, permit, request or matter before the City of Lenexa.

Special event sponsorships are available through the City of Lenexa and are not part of the Lenexa Foundation.

For all other funds, please send your contribution by mail. Please make check payable to:
