Making a Difference Through a Pandemic

When the unthinkable came to our region, UWGKC and its partners stepped up. Here’s how YOUR donations and generosity are making a difference today and will continue to do so in the months and years to come:


  • The formative years of a child’s life create their path for the future. In the immediate aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak, UWGKC invested more than $700,000 into early learning centers.

Healthcare Access

  • Everyone deserves healthcare. UWGKC has invested nearly $1 million to provide access to healthcare to more than 150,000 individuals in the Kansas City metro area.

Rent/Mortgage Assistance

  • Shelter is critical. UWGKC supports 20 programs that provide these services, which allow more than 121,000 individuals to stay in their homes.

Utility Payment Assistance

  • Keep the lights on. UWGKC is supporting programs that provide services to approximately 15,000 low-income households.

Case Management
