Community Foundation Events

Donor Education Events

Due to growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is postponing several upcoming events. We are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to adjust our events schedule as needed.

Join us to meet your fellow Community Foundation donors and learn how to make the most of your giving. 

Please note that donor education events are open only to Community Foundation donors, their families and advisors.
