How to Contribute to Your Fund

With so many options, contributing to your fund is easy.

The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation offers several easy contribution options. Instructions for each option are listed below.

Contributions are normally posted within three to five business days of receipt, and they are reflected as of the date the deposit is received. Gifts of assets other than cash may take longer to show in the fund balance.

If you have any questions or are interested in donating a type of asset not listed here, please contact Donor Services at service@growyourgiving.org or 816.842.7444. 

If your fund's assets are invested separately in a financial advisor managed account, please work with your financial advisor to contribute to your fund. Financial advisors should email advisorservices@growyourgiving.org to notify the Community Foundation of incoming contributions.
