Who are WE

The O’Brate Foundation will strive to improve the opportunities for disadvantaged youth in Kansas by assisting with emergency needs, providing educational scholarships to deserving youth, and addressing specific stumbling blocks lying in their path on the road to success.

OUR Mission

The O’Brate Foundation was established in 2012 through the generosity of the Cecil O'Brate Family. The Foundation is directed by a Board of six trustees who are charged with the responsibility of carrying out the goals of the Foundation.


The O’Brate Foundation recognizes that the future is in the hands of today's youth. To make the future brighter for all, disadvantaged youth must be given opportunities for success. The Foundation will strive to improve the chance for success of these Kansas youth.
