Purchase Stock in Central Kansas Development Inc.

We are always looking for enthusiastic, visionary people to invest in the future of the Great Bend area. Funds we acquire by selling stock in the organization provide us with resources that can be loaned out to businesses that are doing exciting things and creating jobs. Some stock holders also volunteer to serve on the Board of Directors, but that is not a requirement. Stockholders typically do not receive distributions, but they do receive the satisfaction of contribution to an organization that has helped dozens of businesses overcome hurdles that might've otherwise hindered their growth.
