WHO IS THE GREATER KANSAS CITY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION?
The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is an organization that allows us to accept donations through The Giving Group KC website and send our donation to the selected non-profit in one lump sum. The mission of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life in Greater Kansas City by increasing charitable giving, educating and connecting donors to community needs they care about, and leading on critical community issues.
A few benefits to our partnership with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation:

- automatically receive your quarterly donation receipts via email
- the subscription options make budgeting and scheduling your donations super easy and manageable
