Awarding Nearly $300K in Community Grants

Each year through the Community Grants process at the Foundation, we receive many excellent grant proposals from organizations that are making a difference in our communities in Eastern Jackson County.

While THCF was approved to distribute $250,000+ to charities in the community this year, we received more than $900,000 in requests. Therefore, we were unable to completely fund organizations that had great potential to serve and strengthen the region. That’s where our generous partners: Junior Service League of Independence, Kansas City Metro Men’s Chorus, Youth Advisory Council and our Donor Advised Fund holders stepped up to fill part of the funding gap! These four groups helped fund requests that the Grants Committee had endorsed, but was unable to completely fund. Thus, more organizations will be able to continue their work in our communities as a result.

 Fund holders that responded to funding requests by October 27 will be recognized in the program at our Annual Grants Luncheon on November 18, 2016, where the Foundation will award grants funded through our Community Grants process. Thank you to our partners who continue to make a difference in our communities!
