Thank you for all that you do for Kansas!


Looking for funding for your projects? Some communities are considering Kanstarter! Wilson is raising money for their Opera House, and Burdett PRIDE is raising funds for their miniature golf course! Minimum donations start at $1 - and as we all know, every dollar counts! Have a Kanstarter page? Let us know and we will put it on our Facebook and more!

Up for a Community Visit? 

Would your community like to have a visit to catch up or visit with Jaime Menon? With her new job responsibilities she hopes to be able to visit as many communities as she can in 2014. If you are interested, please email Jaime at PRIDE@ksu.edu.

Building Better Communities

The Kansas PRIDE Program is a partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.

Kansas PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a better place to live and work.

Through the PRIDE program, local communities identify what they would like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the Kansas Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create their ideal community future.
