Last week, I tooted my own horn about how the BBB can help nonprofit organizations. This week I'm going to toot the horn of 3 local organizations every Kansas City charity should be working with.
In no particular order, I present:
Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership
MCNL, housed at UMKC, advances nonprofit operations through the development of its leaders. It offers seminars and workshops in the areas of fundraising, strategic planning, finances, board leadership, and management. MCNL also conducts extensive research on the local nonprofit sector.
Greater Kansas City Community Foundation
With over $1 billion in managed assets, GKCCF is a leader in Kansas City's nonprofit community. This organization streamlines the process of giving for those individuals and businesses that want to establish a charitable fund to benefit causes they care about, but don't want the burden of running it themselves. My favorite program of GKCCF is their giving cards. In amounts ranging from $25 to $250, a giving card is the perfect way to honor people by supporting their charitable endeavors.
Nonprofit Connect is the amazing organization behind the annual Philanthropy Midwest Conference. I attend it every year and always come away with connections and information that make my work in the nonprofit sector better. Nonprofit Connect also offers affordable training in all aspects of nonprofit operations, networking opportunities, and a jobs board for both paid and volunteer positions.
