United Way Seasons of Giving: Spring Edition

April 22 @ 9:00 am April 26 @ 3:30 pm

United Way of Greater Kansas City believes when the community is generous, everyone wins. One way to fuel the work we do is to volunteer. Each year, thousands of Kansas Citians do so by giving time to hundreds of United Way supported organizations – performing a variety of tasks that support our mission to improve health, education, and financial stability for all.

We are excited to expand our Seasons of Giving to celebrate National Volunteer Week, because while volunteering is important to support organizations during traditional holiday seasons, it is vital each season of the year. We have partnered with several of our Impact 100 and Nonprofit Catalyst Grantee organizations to provide Season of Giving: Spring Edition. Each day of the week, we have selected opportunities for community members to get involved and be a part of the impact firsthand.

These events are open to all – United Way donor network members, supporters, companies and general public! Stay tuned as more opportunities are added.

For any questions about this event please contact Hannah Boehm at

Please check back often as we are adding volunteer opportunities, regularly.
