Kansas City Programs & Initiatives

Ewing Kauffman worked to make Kansas City a major league city.

The Foundation continues that legacy today and supports its vibrancy through investments in education and entrepreneurship.

Kansas City Civic has three key initiatives to complement the work of education and entrepreneurship while also contributing to the vibrancy of the city:

  • Cross Program Initiatives: Support large-scale initiatives that support education and/or entrepreneurship, such as out-of-school programming; Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) programs and others.
  • Key City Assets: Ensure the long-term success of Kansas City’s irreplaceable cultural assets, such as Union Station, the Kauffman Center, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum, Truman Library, Linda Hall Library, Kansas City Zoo and World War I Museum.
  • Nonprofit Effectiveness: Work to ensure Kansas City’s nonprofit sector develops capacity and efficiencies to better serve community needs, specifically human-serving and education-supporting nonprofits.
