Serve Your Community

Great Jobs KC Provides Opportunities for the Community to Donate and Serve

Want to invest your time or money in a program that creates transformational change for thousands in the Kansas City region? Community involvement is an important pillar in Great Jobs KC’s guiding philosophy. One hundred percent of donations Great Jobs KC receives from the community go directly to support additional scholarships for low- and modest-income students and adult learners in the Kansas City region.

We also have named scholarships at Great Jobs KC. With a commitment of $2,500 a year for five consecutive years, any donor can name the scholarship to honor an individual or entity. The named scholarship will be awarded with both the Great Jobs KC’s name and the donor’s name.

You can also donate your time to Great Jobs KC by serving as a volunteer community reviewer. Community reviewers evaluate application essays and recommendations each spring. Reviewers dedicate approximately 20 hours of time each award cycle.

Donations of all amounts are accepted, and larger, multi-year donations are also encouraged. Donors receive a statement for tax purposes. If you prefer to visit in person about a potential donation, please contact Associate Vice President of Development Karolyn Dreiling at or 816-601-2282
