“The Women’s Foundation provides a critical piece in the development of women and girls. I come from a matriarchal family. I understand the importance of providing a network of support to help women and girls realize their potential and be the best they can possibly be. The programs and volunteer opportunities The Women’s Foundation offers gives the education and tools needed for women and girls to be successful. I know the support I give the foundation will help so many more than any single donation to one charity. “– Andre Logan
Andre also spends his time volunteering for Uplift Organization, Inc., the Regional Transit Alliance, and the American Jazz Museum.

“The Women’s Foundation is “one stop shopping” for me. Our grants incorporate the core interests I have focused on throughout my life -both personally and professionally. For 30 years my professional focus, in my private practice, my consulting, my writing, has been the psychology and well-being of women. My volunteer work has had the same focus. Thus when I contribute to the Foundation on a regular basis, I know that my money is being directed to the organizations and programs doing what I care most about — providing opportunities for the emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual well-being of women and girls. The Foundation provides the most satisfying way I have found to give back to my community with confidence.” –Linda Moore, Ph.D.
“I firmly believe that if society can figure out how to support women (and girls) in our local communities; giving them the resources they need to contribute to the welfare of their homes (whether single parent or not) the whole community will be enhanced. The Women’s Foundation of Greater Kansas City has given me so much hope that this can be accomplished! I work in the investment industry and value the enhancement of financial education in everyone’s life - in the context of the WFGKC, for women and particularly for girls. If we can catch girls while they are just learning these concepts, we can make progress in limiting the behaviors that work against economic self sufficiency. This foundation clearly supports that premise.
Knowing that the contributions to the endowment will be a legacy for this organization, it makes it easy to give. I want my personal legacy to show that I cared about women and girls in Kansas City and wanted them to have more.” - Peg VanWagoner
