KANSAS BANKERS EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION (KBEF) Logo

Our mission is to create a pipeline of future Kansas bankers
and enhance the image of the Kansas banking industry.
 

In 1999, the Kansas Bankers Association (KBA) established the Kansas Bankers Education Foundation (KBEF) with the goal of educating those interested in pursuing a career in the banking industry and to help educate non bankers about the important role banks play in their communities.
