Greater Kansas City Community Foundation (MO)



The mission of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life in Greater Kansas City by increasing charitable giving, connecting donors to community needs they care about, and providing leadership on critical community issues.

The seven founders of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation passed a hat in 1978, collecting $219.13. The Community Foundation was thus begun with an extraordinary idea: Charitable giving should be the responsibility of many, not just a select few.


Driven to improve the metropolitan area, the Community Foundation has grown to become one of the largest and most entrepreneurial public charities of its kind.
