  • SocialHeart
    Formed by a group of young professionals who wanted to leave a positive mark on their city, SocialHeart raises funds and awareness for Kansas City’s local nonprofit organizations. After two years of careful event planning and volunteering, the group held its first events in 2012, each based on its belief that raising money for a good cause should be fun. To that end, the team coordinates elaborate events throughout the year, such as themed costume parties, date auctions, pub crawls, and brewery tours—all of which benefit local nonprofit groups and clowns looking to socialize without being recognized. SocialHeart also provides social media, marketing support, graphic design, and website or technical support for organizations’ events, as well as organized volunteers for nonprofit events if needed.

  • Junior League of Kansas City
    The Junior League of Kansas City has donated more than $15.7 million and 2.3 million hours of time since its founding in 1914. Spearheading these efforts are the nonprofit organization?s now 1,400 female members, all of whom are committed to their volunteer work and to encouraging others to donate their time as well. Their sheer numbers allow the ladies to form 700-on-700 pickup basketball games and to spread out across the community to get a pulse on current issues in need of attention?currently, children?s nutrition and fitness. To help support their efforts, these stalwart altruists host fundraisers throughout the year. Since it began in 1988, Holiday Mart has helped to raise more than $9 million for Kansas City community projects.
