There are so many ways to make a difference. As an independent, nonprofit corporation serving as the official fund-raising and fund-management organization for the University of Missouri-Kansas City, the UMKC Foundation was established in 2009 to raise, invest and manage the charitable gifts on behalf of UMKC.

The people who work at the UMKC Foundation know it is a very special place where everyone plays a part in achieving the University's vision of becoming a model urban research university characterized by signature graduate and professional programs, a dynamic undergraduate population, a highly diverse faculty, staff and student body, and active engagement with its city and region.
