Mission

The Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust was created (under a will dated August 25, 1978) for the furtherance and development of public charitable and educational purposes.

Courtney S. Turner was born March 1st, 1896 in Atchison, Kansas to C.F.A. and Georgia Pierce Turner, two of the Atchison’s pioneer residents. Mr. Turner attended Atchison Public Schools and earned his first dime at the age of 6 as a substitute carrier for the Atchison Globe. He then had a distinguished career in the military and later achieved great success in both finance and real estate. He returned to Atchison in 1968, where he spent the remaining 18 years of his life. He was well known in the community for his philanthropic contributions throughout the city. The legacy of his charitable trust continues to play an important role in the development and growth of the Atchison, Kansas area.

Guidelines

On multi-year requests, the trustees will consider only 1 year requests at a time. Applications will only be accepted from 501(c)(3) organizations in the Atchison, Kansas community area. The application deadline for the Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust is September 30.

The trust prefers to give grants for specific purposes (buildings, capital equipment and programs) to be completed in a fixed number of short years. Only a limited number of grants will be considered for operational expenses. On multi-year requests, the trustees will consider only one-year requests at a time. All grants are 1 year in duration.

All submitted applications will be reviewed by the Atchison Advisory Committee, with final applications being presented to the Turner Trustees in November. All favorable, approved grants will be announced by the end of December and grants will be issued in the following calendar year.
