Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Haysville Community Library Foundation goals are:
    1. Legacy donations and end of life memorials
    2. Larger sponsorship opportunities through mid-size and larger companies
    3. A possible music festival fundraiser
    4. Fees & donations from other kinds of classes depending on the needs of the community.
    5. Possibly a yearly fundraising Gala with speaker, entertainment, dinner and an auction.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Writing and seeking Grants, donations, class fees, contributions, and putting in place an executive director to coordinate foundation business and functions.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The Haysville Community Library Foundation (HCLF) has a close connection to the Haysville Community Library in that the foundation was originally set up in 2002 to handle donations made to help restore the Library at its former location at 130 East Grand in Haysville in the aftermath of the devastating May 1999 tornado. The original site was destroyed on May 3rd of 1999 by the tornado that tore through the Oklahoma and Kansas midsection.

    The HCLF offices are also located inside the current site of the library at 210 South Hays, Haysville, KS. Please note that although the initial creation of the foundation as a 501(c)3 was for the express purpose of accepting tax-free donations to aid the operations of the library, facilitate its capital improvements, and to offset technical improvements needed to keep up with current library systems. The foundation’s mission has evolved to include improving the quality of life for the city of Haysville and surrounding communities.

    1. Individual & Family Membership Drive – Conducted approximately once a year - - - members receive Newsletter, are named on website and in Newsletter, are invite to all events, and receive special recognition at Foundation Sponsored events.
