KC Regional Response Fund

The Kansas City Regional COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund was established to support area nonprofits that focus on health and human service needs, where they community demands are the highest.

This partnership with Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, LISC Greater Kansas City (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) and Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) is making a difference for our neighbors.

Every dollar raised in Kansas City will stay here to serve this community.
