Key City Issues

We support communities as they work to solve entrenched local issues that create disparate outcomes. This work includes data analysis, increased collaboration, targeted interventions, and nonprofit effectiveness.

Programs & Initiatives

Nonprofit Effectiveness

We invest in select intermediary organizations helping local human services and educational nonprofits to better meet community needs. Specifically, we work with the Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership, Nonprofit Connect, and Support KC. Collectively, these support organizations provide leadership training, operational and administrative services, and professional development for the staff and volunteers of other nonprofit organizations in Greater Kansas City.

Community Wealth Building

For the past year, we have supported a broad-based coalition – We Grow KC – working to build wealth for residents living in Kansas city’s systematically disadvantaged zip codes. Through convening community conversations, our role became increasingly clear – to support alignment of resources, increase collaboration, collection and sharing of relevant data and information, and support targeted programming that leads to stronger outcomes for residents.
