|Kansas City Chinese American Association (KCCAA) is a not-for-profit organization and our mission is to celebrate Chinese heritage; provide local community services; promote learning and mutual understanding through various charitable and educational activities within local communities. We’ve continued to evolve and expand the association’s focus to broaden the minds and perspectives of many – increasing cultural awareness and celebrating a storied heritage along the way. A recent example of KCCAA’s impact was our largest fundraiser for the KC Friendship School in China, a project that resulted from the earthquake ravaged Sichuan Province in China. Despite this catastrophic event, many participated through numerous Kansas City cultural and educational area programs to provide local inhabitants with hope. For those who supported this project, we thank you and we are greatly humbled by your outpouring of compassion.
KCCAA works closely with the Kansas City Ethnic Enrichment Commission, the Confucius Institute at the University of Kansas, the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC), and various other local school districts and organizations. We are honored to have such relationships in place. The leadership of our board of directors, along with the tremendous efforts from our members, has allowed KCCAA to become the largest Chinese organization in the Kansas City area. We are proud to say we have more than 1,000 active members who are influencing the Chinese-American community both socially and economically. Charitable and educational programs are supported by various annual fundraising activities. Our members, the public, and local corporations, which are governed by the IRS tax exemption code of 501c (3), serve as sponsors.
Looking ahead, KCCAA is planning a series of activities that will continue the expansion and appreciation of cultural diversity. We will continue to expand our member base and solidify our strong foundation in the Kansas City community for generations to come.
