Rules of Engagement

By Young Pros

The project must be submitted by April 3 by an individual who is between 18 and 40 years old.


The project must be structured to help make Wichita great and more desirable for young talent.


No project is too small. Project funding can be a small as $50, $500, or $2,000. Chosen projects will be awarded no more than $10,000. You must show us how that money will be put to good use.

The W Fund is a collaborative initiative between W and the Wichita Educational Foundation
