Welcome to the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas (CFNEK). The CFNEK is the charitable foundation for the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.  We support the archdiocese by helping parishes, schools, Catholic ministries to establish, manage and increase gifts to funds that support their respective parish, school or organization.  In 2009 CFNEK launched the Planned Giving Initiative(PGI) to build a culture where every practicing Catholic included a charitable gift to the church at death. We are a planned giving resource to individuals and estate planning professionals to help accomplish their philanthropic goals.

A presentation of the PGI and How to Build Planned Giving into your parish culture is available on the Archiocese of Kansas City in Kansas Digital Media Center.
