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.

Please note the fund's six-digit fund ID, which serves as the account number for the fund. Contributions that do not include a fund ID may be delayed.

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 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.


Make checks payable to the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, noting your six-digit fund ID on the memo line. If you do not know your fund ID, the name of your fund is sufficient. Mail to:
