The Kansas Sampler Foundation is planning a new crowdfunding site to support projects that help rural communities.
The pilot website, called Kanstarter, is scheduled to be up and running later this month.
Foundation 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.
So far, 24 proposals have been submitted for the pilot project and a committee has narrowed the initial list to four.
