Driving south on Interstate 135 near 21st Street, many drivers have caught a glimpse of the world’s largest outdoor acrylic mural painted by a single artist. While colorful and eye-catching, the Beechner Grain Elevator mural is just one of 20 pieces curated through Horizontes, an artist-driven community engagement project. Horizontes focused on bringing solidarity to two underrepresented Wichita communities: the predominantly Latino NorthEnd and the historically African American Northeast neighborhoods. The Horizontes team, led by Armando Minjarez, curated cultural events, exhibitions, workshops and art. Minjarez describes the Beechner mural as a landmark of solidarity and pride, while the smaller murals ground the neighborhoods in their amplification of past and present residents’ stories and collective history. “We had the ability to funnel different relationships into the project – ones we were building within the neighborhood,” said Minjarez. “It wasn’t just about the mural(s). (They were) an avenue to address something bigger.”

Horizontes helped Minjarez realize just how hungry people are for authentic connections and a sense of belonging, although he feels many people missed the point. “People want something to rally around…something to be proud of,” said Minjarez. “If the conversation is centered around having a world record, it shows there’s still a huge gap. It should be about community, the people who live in the neighborhood, people of color – all the themes we addressed.” Horizontes was primarily funded with a $100,000 grant from the Knight Cities Challenge. The Wichita Community Foundation served as the fiscal sponsor. Additional dollars came from WCF fundholders, fundraising events and an Indiegogo campaign. To foster meaningful conversations around the project, Horizontes was awarded an additional $40,000 from the Knight Foundation Fund at WCF in 2019. “What I hope this (work) means to the community is that we feel proud of where we come from…that we take ownership of our neighborhoods, of our communities,” said Minjarez.

BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH CONNECTION Susan Moellinger and Jennifer Garrison connected with WCF when they applied for funding from the Wichita Wagonmasters Good Life Grants Fund. Passageways has since established an agency fund at the Foundation.


Five years ago, mother and daughter Susan Moellinger and Jennifer Garrison left their fulltime jobs to take a chance. They wanted to close a gap they saw in the community, so they established Passageways, Ltd – a nonprofit focused on serving homeless, or near homeless, veterans. Today, their organization is in the midst of expanding their services from one home – Passageways Living Center – to the Homefront Veteran Neighborhood, complete with 30 cottages. Moellinger and Garrison have no doubt it’s due to a slew of individuals and organizations that have helped Passageways get to where it is today – one of those being the Wichita Community Foundation. “Funding is a huge help when you’re talking about up to nine guys in one house, and everything is paid for – gas, electric, water and trash,” said Garrison. “That’s a load off us because then we’re able to really focus on what the guys need next.” Passageways has benefited from WCF through multiple avenues the last few years, including grants from the Wichita Wagonmasters Good Life Grants Fund and attending

professional development trainings through WCF’s Magnify program. Most recently, they established an endowed agency fund at WCF. Agency funds, specifically for nonprofits, are placed into investment pools with other assets of WCF to build and preserve the funds in perpetuity. As a plus, it also relieves an organization’s staff and Board of Directors from the accounting and management of its invested funds and provides access to regular disbursements. “We wanted to invest that money so it would be making something instead of just sitting in the bank,” said Moellinger. “I researched several different places – the bank, CDs…I talked to an investment counselor that I know, and WCF was the best option for us.” Although the agency fund has been a valuable resource to their mission, Moellinger and Garrison believe the visibility and network WCF offers have been the most helpful to Passageways. “I think that’s what WCF is all about – connecting nonprofits and helping them succeed through whatever means,” said Moellinger.

SEEKING SOLUTIONS TOGETHER

It was Linda Oneslager’s relationship with financial advisor Kale Kroupa that showed her the value of working with a community foundation.


Linda Oneslager is no stranger to philanthropy. She spends her days in retirement tending a garden to provide for those in need, leading a food pantry, quilting blankets for those experiencing hardship, baking bread for hospice patients and crocheting bags for the homeless. It was only when her husband passed away unexpectedly a year-and-a-half ago that she realized she had the opportunity to give more than her time to the causes she cherishes. Oneslager began by working with her financial advisor, Kale Kroupa, to determine how to best direct her husband’s life insurance policy. “What I saw was she wanted to pour herself into more (giving),” said Kroupa. “It kept her busy while she was mourning. Through that, she discovered different causes, and we realized options existed where she could financially support these things in a way that could go on forever.” It was appealing to Oneslager that, through the Wichita Community Foundation, she could direct where the money would go without being tied down to one organization. “I (also) wanted the money to stay in the community,” said Oneslager, who has called Wichita home her whole life. Kroupa knew WCF could help Oneslager contribute to multiple nonprofits through a field of interest fund.

“It’s great that you can just share the general topic you’re interested in, and we don’t have to worry if one nonprofit goes out of business years down the road,” said Kroupa. “That was a really good fit.” Kroupa also felt comfortable suggesting WCF as an option because he feels confident in the Foundation’s knowledge of the local charitable landscape. “WCF knows what’s going on (in the nonprofit community), and we don’t a lot of the time,” said Kroupa. “To be able to have that kind of connection, that’s a great value.” Oneslager agrees and says she has already gained new knowledge of nonprofits through conversations with WCF. When WCF works with professional advisors and their clients, they function in a triangular relationship where WCF acts as a charitable advisor. As a partner, WCF ensures the client’s charitable intent is followed, even after death, and if the nonprofit status changes. Because of the relationship between WCF and professional advisors, Oneslager can now use the Floyd & Linda Oneslager Family Fund at WCF to fulfill her charitable goals. “It is a treat for me to get to see people like Linda get to do what they want to do and be able to know that the gifts will continue forever,” said Kroupa.

The goal of the Authors in Schools Fund at WCF is to bring authors to four Wichita Title I schools per year and provide a free book to each student.


EMBRACING THE UNEXPECTED

To reach effective outcomes, organizations must be willing to adapt. That has certainly been the case for the unique partnership between the Wichita Community Foundation and Watermark Books & Café. As a 2017 WCF Impact Literacy grantee, Watermark teamed up with Wichita Police and Fire Departments to host neighborhood events where policemen and firefighters gave free books to children. “We loved the connections that were made,” said Watermark Owner Sarah Bagby. “Can you imagine being a kid, and the firetruck comes along and somebody gives you a book? They’re never going to forget that.” After a few events, the departments found themselves spread thin, and the partnership was no longer sustainable. Since Watermark still had grant money to utilize, they got to thinking. Watermark’s Authors in Schools program – which recruits children’s authors to Wichita schools – was already in full swing, but they could only manage to bring authors where students could afford to buy books.

“Since we aren’t a nonprofit, we have to generate revenue somehow when an author goes to a school,” said Bagby. “There was a disparity between which schools the authors could go to. We wanted to fill a gap so if we brought an author to a Title I school, all of the students would get books.” Watermark brainstormed how they could best utilize their partnership with WCF to maximize their impact through the Authors in Schools program. After thinking the situation through with WCF, the bookstore created a field of interest fund. “This will allow every student in the school to receive a book,” said Bagby. “It means more. It extends the experience of meeting the author.” At the first book distribution, 165 kids received books from Nick Bruel, author of Bad Kitty. To sustain the program, Watermark customers have the opportunity to round their total to the next dollar and contribute to the Authors in Schools Fund. Individuals can also donate at wichitacf.org. “We’re really proud of this, and we know it’s important,” said Bagby. “We’ve loved partnering with WCF. It’s been a really valuable experience.”

Mary Lynn Oliver’s philanthropic track record began long before her days as a founding Board member at the Wichita Community Foundation. In fact, when she was a little girl, Oliver would transform her backyard into a “circus,” where she and a friend would perform what they called “trapeze acts” as they hung from the jungle gym. They charged admission for these performances, and they donated the collected money to charity. Oliver may not perform backyard “circus acts” anymore, but her passion for philanthropy still holds strong. It was WCF’s mission to fulfill people’s charitable desires to benefit the whole community that drew her to the Foundation in 1986 – the year of WCF’s inception. She served as Board chair from 1993-96, and during that time raised WCF’s assets from $4 million to more than $10 million. She contributed by creating the endowed Beech Memorial Fund and the Philanthropic Leadership Fund, a matching challenge grant in 1993. The establishment of these funds, for the first time, elevated WCF’s assets above $5 million. Oliver credits Gene Struckhoff, a “community foundation

11

guru” famous for helping start dozens of community foundations, for the motivation behind her efforts. “He (Struckhoff) said you have to reach the $5 million mark before you’re sustained, so that became my goal,” said Oliver. And 25 years later, with Oliver still intimately involved, WCF currently manages $87 million. “I never imagined WCF would be where it is today, but with the history of community foundations, I guess that was my hope,” said Oliver. Oliver recently ended her second six-year term on the WCF Board of Directors in June. “Her dedication to the Foundation, and to philanthropy, is evidenced by the fact that she was still willing to serve on the Board,” said one of the founding members of WCF, Fred Berry. “A gracious, humble, but strong, lady. She raised WCF to a new level.” When asked why she has dedicated as much of herself as she has to philanthropy, Oliver refers to a quote coined by Edward Everett Hale: “I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something, and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”


Mary Lynn Oliver is a lifelong Wichitan and wouldn’t have it any other way, calling the city “easy and pleasant with a high quality of life.”

LIVING A LIFE OF PHILANTHROPY

Three days. That’s all it took between the sale of the Boesens’ business and opening the Boesen Family Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation. It was Ben’s career in the elevator industry that brought the Boesens to Wichita two decades ago. Several years later, Ben ventured to start his own business – Boesen Plumb Elevator Solutions. The company has worked on almost every building in downtown Wichita, including the Ambassador, The Lux and ReNew Wichita. Almost 10 years to the day of the start of operation, Ben and Cindy received an offer to sell the company that was “too good to pass up.”

THE BUSINESS OF PAY I N G I T F O R WA R D


“With the sale of the business pending, we started doing some planning,” said Ben. The Boesens were working with a local advisor when they became familiar with the option of a community foundation to assist with their charitable desires. “We saw ‘here’s an avenue to give money that stays within the community,’ and that was intriguing,” said Cindy. “To have so much of what we love about the community and what we had already been donating toward tied in…we just didn’t realize there was a big umbrella that could cover it all.” Prior to opening their fund at WCF, the couple was philanthropically active, giving locally to the fine arts and their church. Now, the unique partnership with WCF has sparked their interest in

widening their scope of giving. “As a family, our money had always followed our children and what they were involved in,” said the couple. “That’s where our initial interests are, but just knowing how much WCF serves – things that we hadn’t even thought of or considered. It gives us an opportunity to be introduced to new things.” After a conversation with WCF President and CEO Shelly Prichard, Cindy said, “It was a pretty easy decision. We never even questioned it after that meeting.” The opportunity to be charitable and leave a legacy at the same time was appealing to the Boesens. “It’s all part of an investment back into the community,” said Ben. “We’re investing in Wichita in ways that we didn’t even know were out there. That’s what WCF is offering us.”

The Boesens arrived in Wichita 25 years ago with the expectation of packing up their bags and moving to the next city within a few years. Now, they can’t imagine calling anywhere else home.
