A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO: As the nation suffers through more tragedies of racial injustice, we must focus on both short-term and long-term solutions; true equity and inclusion will only come from systems we rebuild better. Read the message from Wendy >

WE BELIEVE all people – regardless of their background – should have the opportunity to learn, take risks, and own their own success.

Yet, all the money in the world cannot solve problems unless we work together.

So, we first listen to the communities we serve, tap into our learnings and relationships, and bring everyone together…

… to build and support programs that improve education, boost entrepreneurship, and help our hometown of Kansas City thrive.
