Enhancing Black communities in Kansas City.

August 2021: Introducing Our Culture of Giving Campaign

The Black Community Fund is excited to announce the launch of our inaugural Culture of Giving campaign! Rooted in the rich history of Black giving in the U.S. and inspired by the spirit of Black Philanthropy Month, the Culture of Giving campaign encourages donors from all socioeconomic, racial, and age backgrounds to contribute to BCF’s vital work. August is Black Philanthropy Month, a global celebration and concerted campaign to elevate African-descent giving. 

BCF wants you to activate your philanthropic voice by supporting our efforts! Join us in reaching our goal of raising $175,000 for Black communities in the Kansas City metropolitan area by making a donation, becoming a corporate partner or contributing a seed gift.

About the Black Community Fund

The Black Community Fund (BCF), an affiliate of the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, was established by the Hall Family Foundation in 1983. Its mission is to provide support and leadership to enhance socio-economic aspects of African-American communities in the Greater Kansas City area.

BCF has awarded more than $4.5 million to more than 200 nonprofit organizations addressing critical community needs. In 2010, BCF launched an academic scholarship program. Students receive a minimum of $5,000 and commit to 16 hours of community service. 84 students make up BCF's college-going pipeline, and they have a presence in 33 U.S. institutions from HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) to Ivy Leagues.
