History & Mission
HistoryIn October, 2015 a meeting was held between some interested Sabetha citizens and some board members and the staff of the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation. The board members explained to those present how a community foundation could benefit Sabetha and how the GMCF has made a difference to the Manhattan community.
A decision to form a community foundation for our region for the purpose of doing good works was made at this time and people were asked to serve on the board. The first decision made by the Board of Directors was to become an affiliate with the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.
Officers were elected and meeting dates were set. The Greater Sabetha Community Foundation was formally founded as an affiliate of GMCF in December, 2015.
The thirteen board members meet each 2nd Tuesday of the month at noon in the Wenger Room at Buzz Café.
