Welcome to the Jewish Community Foundation

of Greater Kansas City  

As the Jewish community’s philanthropic resource center, we want you to know that every act of tzedakah moves us toward tikkun olam (repairing the world). The Foundation is here to help you make it happen.


Increase Your Impact!

Extended by popular demand, the Jewish Community Foundation will match one grant to the Jewish organization of your choice when you open a new Donor Advised Fund!*

A Donor Advised Fund is a charitable giving account that can be established with a tax-deductible donation of $5,000 ($2,500 if you're age 35 or younger) in cash or stock.


Stewart & Joy Koesten"We chose a Donor Advised Fund administered through the Foundation to accomplish three family legacy goals. We want to simplify our annual giving, provide a means to manage charitable distributions when we are both deceased and to engage our children in the process, thus hopefully passing on our charitable giving values." - Stewart & Joy Koesten


In response to this incentive program, 31 new Donor Advised Funds have already been opened and the Foundation has distributed an extra $48,000 to the Jewish community. Join the Koestens and many others who have taken advantage of this great opportunity to give smarter.
