The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation’s founders passed a hat in 1978, collecting $200 and some change. Thereafter, the Community Foundation grew from an extraordinary idea: Charitable giving should be the responsibility of many, not just a select few. Driven to improve the metropolitan area, the Community Foundation has become one of the largest and most entrepreneurial public charities of its kind. In the 1990s, their innovative spirit led them to become the first and only charity to receive, hold and, in 2000, sell a major league sports team – the Kansas City Royals. In 2004, they created Greater Horizons to serve those who wish to use their services under a national entity. Today, the Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of life in Greater Kansas City by increasing charitable giving, educating and connecting donors to community needs they care about, and leading on critical community issues.
