Nonprofit Catalyst Grant Town Hall

January 17 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us at the Nonprofit Catalyst Grant Town Hall, a collaborative initiative by United Way of Greater Kansas City and The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. This event is designed to bring together The Kauffman leadership, United Way Leadership, current Catalyst Grantees, and potential future grantees. Our focus is on networking, uplifting BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving grassroots organizations, and highlighting the impact of the grant in this space.

During this town hall, we provide a safe space for open discussions on the challenges faced by grassroots organizations that have been traditionally overlooked in funding opportunities. We aim to foster honest conversations about barriers to success in the philanthropic space, exploring both the successes and hinderances of capacity-building endeavors.

This platform allows BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving organizations to share their experiences, discuss the successes and ongoing challenges still faced after the grant, and welcome new applicants who want to learn more. The event is open to current Nonprofit Catalyst Grantees, and anyone interested in applying or learning more about the grant.

We woke up as champions expecting to celebrate a day in triumph. Instead, February 14th will be remembered for its tragedy. This moment is an opportunity to turn our collective outrage into action. The Chiefs and United Way have created a special emergency fund to support our community in its efforts to heal and become more resilient in the wake of these horrific events.
