BRANDI GARNICA

Program Officer- Scholarships

I am so excited to be the newest employee at CKCF, and the more I am learning about the job and the foundation, the more I feel like I have landed in the right place.  

I was born and raised right here in Newton, Kansas, and after moving about the country for 10 years going to college, and managing Photography Studios, I decided to raise my own family here in Newton.


I have spent much of the last decade working in the Dental field and as much as I like teeth, I am looking forward to this new avenue of learning and growth with CKCF, doing work that makes me proud and feel good.  


My wonderful husband (Derrick) and I, have FIVE beautiful children, Emerson (15y), Gray (12y), Lennon (10y), Cole (6y) and baby Isla (10 months). When we aren’t busy with all the sporting and school activities, we enjoy camping, music, vacationing, cooking, and just spending time as a family.  


I can’t wait to meet you all and get to know everyone better!

DONOR CONNECTION - NOVEMBER.2023

We hope this note finds you well. In our community and across the country, families are gearing up for a busy fourth quarter. Giving season shifts into full gear, and we look forward to working with you! Whether you've already established your donor-advised or other type of fund at the community foundation or are currently considering it, please reach out. We would love to help you get even more connected to the causes you care about while maximizing tax benefits at the same time.


In this issue, we’re covering topics that are on the minds of many people as the year winds down.


Retirement and charitable giving continue to be intertwined.

It is important to recognize the opportunities presented for charitable giving at every stage of retirement. Learn how the community foundation has you covered!

 

Meeting your 2023 charitable goals does not have to be stressful.

The team at the community foundation can help you accomplish your charitable giving objectives efficiently, effectively, and joyfully, including tapping into tax benefits.

 

Do good, feel better.

Learn why philanthropy is such a powerful catalyst for well-being--both your own well-being and the health and happiness of the people whose lives you are improving through gifts to your favorite nonprofits.


Thanks again for all you do. We are honored to work together and wish you the best.


Angie Tatro,

CKCF CEO
