On July 27, 2022, the Mayor’s Charity Fund was established. Throughout the year, the Mayor and the City of Basehor may hold fundraisers whose proceeds will benefit local non-profit organizations and charities. The revenues in the Mayor’s Charity Fund will solely be from fundraising activities. The purpose of the fund is to create a separate fund to promote transparency and accountability for funds received, spent, and donated.
Throughout the year, the Mayor may open calls for funding whereby local charities and nonprofits can make applications to the Mayor in pursuit of funding. The primary fundraising activity for the Mayor’s Charity Fund is the Mayor’s Annual Golf Tournament.
