Kansas Sampler Group Chooses Plains Grocery Store Project

KSCB News - September 3, 2014 10:25 am

The Kansas Sampler Foundation is planning a new crowd funding site to support projects that help rural communities.

A pilot website, called Kanstarter, is scheduled to be up and running later this month.

The foundation’s director, Marci Penner, says projects allowed on the website will have to be good for the community and supported by several generations. She says the projects cannot cover salaries or promote religious or political views.

24 proposals were submitted for the pilot project and a committee narrowed the initial list to four.

Those projects are an update to the Burdett Mini Golf Course; purchasing land in Plains for a grocery store; constructing an amphitheater to replace the Wilson Opera House and construction of a recreation trail in Yates Center.
