$164,990,000 in Local Economic Benefit
Tourism brings employment opportunities, cultural awareness, and helps preserve local culture and traditions. Money gained from tourism can be used to develop new infrastructure and services.
The Mariah Fund is a 501(c)3 Private Foundation, formed to provide capital funding to non-profit organizations in Dodge City, Kansas and other communities of Western Kansas, for the exclusive purpose of enhancing regional tourism through both targeted and collaborative efforts. We’ve partnered with dozens of local organizations and communities and as of the end of the 2018 grant session, Mariah Fund’s approximate total economic impact to Kansas is estimated to be $164.99 Million since its inception in 2010.
