100% of Donations Support Additional College Scholarships and Tuition-Free Job Training Programs

Great Jobs KC’s funding model provides the opportunity for community members to donate and fund additional programs for the coming years. All contributions are used to offer college scholarships and tuition-free job training programs to low- and modest-income students and adults from the Kansas City region. Donors with an * after their name are Inaugural Donors that donated between the program launch and June 30, 2018. Great Jobs KC recognizes this group of inaugural donors to our foundation program, KC Scholars, in perpetuity. Because of their generosity and belief in the program, KC Scholars, upon launch, exceeded its early fundraising goals.

Through ongoing support of the community, Great Jobs KC creates a significant impact on the region’s workforce and economy. We appreciate all its donors and thank them for providing the opportunity for thousands to secure great jobs through college or job training in the Kansas City region.
