The Women’s Foundation is committed to teaching women and girls about philanthropy through the following programs:
360° of Giving began as a group of young adult women who contribute a minimum of $250 annually to create a pool of funds. The group then grants these funds to nonprofits serving women and girls in Kansas City. The nonprofits selected use these funds to provide paid internships for young women, bringing full circle the money donated by the 360° of Giving members.
The Rachel Alexandra Girls Grant Project was established in 1999 for the purpose of teaching area teen women all aspects of philanthropy including grantmaking, fundraising, leadership, teambuilding, program evaluation, and budgeting.
Three years ago, more than 100 women and men became a voice in philanthropy. They became a part of a very special and unique network of philanthropic individuals who support the work of the Women’s Foundation. Because of this support, the Foundation has been able to further its mission.
Members of the Latina Giving Circle are women who are committed to creating positive change through philanthropy for greater Kansas City Latinas in need. It is an effort by Latinas, for Latinas, with support of those who believe in the potential of Latinas, regardless of race or background. Members will pool their financial resources to create a funding opportunity for programs that are working to improve the lives of KC area Latinas.
