Sharing Success Program

Wheatland’s “Sharing Success” program  donates $10,000 each year to worthy non-profit organizations in Western Kansas. The program is just what the name implies: a chance for Wheatland to share its own financial stability with non-profit organizations and for Wheatland to enjoy the success of those groups — which are doing great work.

In 2012, Wheatland teamed up with one of the banks it does business with, CoBank, to launch the charitable fund.  CoBank is itself a cooperative, serving agricultural businesses, rural infrastructure providers and Farm Credit associations.  Each year, Wheatland contributes $5,000 and CoBank matches it, for a total of $10,000 to give to worthy groups.

Since its launch, the Sharing Success program has awarded 37 grants for a total of $30,468.  Here are just a few of the fantastic projects we’ve supported so

far:

  • Bad Boyz Boxing Club in Finney County for headgear for participants in its youth boxing program.
  • Greath Bend Community Theatre to help replace its production lighting.
  • Breast Cancer Unity Project in Scott City to distribute breast health information to female high school students.
  • Wichita County Health Center Volunteers to help purchase a player piano for its residents.
  • Hamilton County Library to help create a teen hangout reading room. 

The Scott Community Foundation manages the Sharing Success fund. Grants are typically made in $1,000 blocks, with an emphasis on spreading the wealth evenly to all corners of Wheatland’s service territory.  If your non-profit group would like to be considered for a grant, please contact the Scott Community Foundation at 620-872-3790 for further details.
