Focus Areas

Doing the most good for the greatest areas of need. We improve Kansas City by focusing our attention and by funding programs in three categories for maximum impact.

We’re working to build a healthy community by reinforcing services to fit the needs of our neighbors. We fund programs that support health care, counseling services, child abuse advocacy and more.

A strong community begins early with a focus on education. We fund programs that support school readiness, early learning, before- and after-school programs and more.

Financial Stability

To succeed long-term, our community’s residents must be financially secure. We fund programs that support emergency assistance, adult education, fight to end generational poverty and more.
