COMMUNITY education and planning opportunities

The Hansen Foundation recognizes the strength of community. In pursuit of its mission to provide opportunities for the people of Northwest Kansas to enjoy the highest possible quality of life, the Foundation offers a variety of programs to help with identifying community assets, and working on addressing needs and fulfilling ideas.

The face of this effort is Nadine Sigle. Nadine has 24 years of experience working for K-State Research and Extension as an agent and area specialist. She lives on the family farm in Osborne County with her husband, Scott. They have a son who farms with them, and two daughters. Nadine retired from Extension in 2021 and now works with the Hansen Foundation to continue her passion of helping Northwest Kansas communities thrive.

Contact Nadine at or 785-346-6256.



Communities located in the Foundation’s primary service in Northwest Kansas are eligible to participate in these opportunities, including Asset Mapping, Ripple Effects Mapping, Strategic Doing and a variety of Webinars.
