Hutch Rec Foundation (HRF) is a nonprofit organization that supports the Hutchinson Recreation Commission (Hutch Rec) by advocating for program improvements and recreational opportunities through charitable giving. Since our inception more than 20 years ago, HRF has been able to complete numerous projects, such as the purchase of the Keller Leisure Arts Center (now Hutch Rec Downtown), creation of the Salty Dog Triathlon, and partnering with the Hutchinson Regional Medical Foundation to present the Happy Birthday Hutch Celebration. For the past three years (starting in October 2021) we have hosted and organized Hutch Brewfest: A Craft Beer Festival as a part of our community's annual Hutch Fest in Downtown Hutchinson each October.
We have been proud to provide ongoing support to various Hutch Rec divisions, including adult and youth programs, senior center improvements, the popular Hutch Rec Race Series and other community events, as well as maintenance to the City of Hutchinson’s park and trail system.
But did you know that Hutch Rec provides more than access to parks and recreational opportunities in Hutchinson and Reno County? We also support Hutch Rec in many community endeavors, including work in the arts and humanities as well as the Hutchinson Healthy Neighborhood Initiative.
You or someone you love has almost certainly benefitted from one or more of the programs and initiatives offered by Hutch Rec. We ask for your help toward making these types of opportunities available to even more people in Reno County. Please consider supporting HRF in our 2022 Annual Giving Campaign, by visiting HERE or mailing your donation to Hutch Rec Foundation, c/o 2022 Giving Campaign, 17 E. 1st Ave, Hutchinson, KS 67501. We also invite you to follow our campaign on Facebook and Instagram.
