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.
