Kansas Prosecutors Foundation
The KCDAA Board of Directors established the Kansas Prosecutors Foundation to further the administration of justice in the best interests of the public. Several key points gave rise to the KPF formation:
- The continuing struggle to attract, train and keep quality, career-minded prosecutors.
- Criminal prosecution law has become an area of expertise involving complex issues that demands specialized continuing legal education.
- An obligation to promote the highest of professional training opportunities for the criminal justice system, particularly as it pertains to prosecution.
- The continuing lack of adequate victim/witness assistance and notification.
- Philanthropy is an essential component of a statewide bar association.
The KPF is organized as a Kansas, not-for-profit corporation, with Internal Revenue Service status under §501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.
