United Way of Greater Kansas City is pleased to announce the selection of this year’s Impact 100 partners. This annual list is comprised of the hundred most vital health and human service organizations that United Way will invest and partner with to bring real-time solutions to our community.
Nonprofit organizations selected in this year’s Impact 100 submitted applications, which were reviewed by a diverse panel of community leaders. Each organization must meet a high bar of financial responsibility and be actively working to address the critical challenges facing the Kansas City region today. Impact 100 organizations will receive unrestricted funding from United Way to address their individual nonprofit’s most pressing needs.
“Our goal is to provide funding and resources that go beyond a check — we want to work closely with these organizations to create long-lasting, systemic change that solves real issues in our community,” said Chris Rosson, United Way President and CEO.
This year’s Impact 100 represents all six counties served by United Way of Greater Kansas City and includes strong representation for communities of varied race, color and creed. Broadly, they aim to improve health, enhance educational opportunity and empower economic mobility.
“United Way is more than a fundraising organization,” said Precious Stargell Cushman, United Way Chief Impact Officer. “We are a community-centered, solution-oriented, problem-solving organization for those who need it most, where they need it most and when they need it most.”
