2023 Nonprofit Catalyst Grantee
Location: Kansas City, Mo. (Jackson Co.)
Birthday Connections is the only nonprofit in the Kansas City metro with a mission for all children to be celebrated on their birthdays. It was launched to fill a void to make sure low-income children are recognized and celebrated on their birthdays. The organization collaborates with local social service agencies to refer families who have children with an upcoming birthday. Through the program, families have the agency to choose, with their children’s preferences in mind, from gifts or gift cards, a book, a birthday card, and a sweet treat created with their specifications.
