KCHBA’s Foundation Donates $40,500 to Local Organizations in 2020

The KCHBA’s Foundation Fund was formed as the charitable arm of the association and is committed to supporting the KC community in three main areas: education related to the construction industry, development and/or redevelopment of Kansas City area communities, and charitable causes such as human services like transitional and supportive services and housing.

The Foundation Committee is proud to have partnered with the Veterans Community Project (VCP) for its 2020 Parade of Playhouses fundraiser and is excited to announce that it raised $15,000 for VCP during the Parade of Playhouses. VCP is on a mission to eliminate veteran homelessness by providing transitional-housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions.

Additionally, at the Foundation Committee’s August meeting, the group approved grants to several other local non-profits totaling $25,500. Organizations receiving grants this year are Community Housing of Wyandotte County, Johnson County Developmental Support, Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, Rebuilding Together Kansas City and Make-a-Wish MO & KS.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Foundation this year. The Foundation’s next fundraiser will be a Top Golf tournament on Nov. 4. Click here for more information.
