Donor Education Programs

The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation wants to help make charitable giving extra meaningful. The following opportunities are available for donors with donor-advised funds.


Donors are invited to connect with their charitable peers in a small group setting to gain knowledge, confidence and momentum in giving. Donor-to-Donor events are typically held over lunch at local restaurants. Past Donor-to-Donors have explored the national food landscape, early education in Kansas City and the refugee crisis

Donor Volunteer Opportunities

Donors and their families are invited to join us throughout the year for our multi-generational volunteer opportunities, serving charities that are, in turn, serving multiple organizations in our community.

Programs Just for You

In addition to the opportunities listed here, the Community Foundation offers private, custom educational programs for Community Foundation donors. Our team can facilitate a meeting to help families establish charitable giving roadmaps to guide future giving, or we can offer assistance planning philanthropic activities based on specific charitable interests.

If you would like to attend any upcoming events, or if you’re interested in a custom program for your family or friends, please contact Sidney Peterson at or 816.627.3414.
