Holiday Gold Coin Gifts

KSAL StaffDecember 3, 2014

For nearly a decade an anonymous Wichita donor has arranged for gold coins to be delivered during the holiday season to local nonprofit groups.

Two gold coins were presented Monday to the Lord’s Diner. The coins will go into a vault for the auction the Lord’s Diner hosts each fall to raise money. The coins are valued at $1,300 each.

Guadalupe Clinic provides health care for those in need, and it too received a gold coin on Monday.

Wichita Community Foundation says in a news release that the first set of coins was distributed in 2005 to five local organizations. The donor has established a $100,000 endowment known as the Gold Coin Society Fund so that the gifts can continue long after he has died.
