Donations

KCCAA is planning a series of activities that will continue the expansion and appreciation of cultural diversity. We will continue to expand our over 1,000 member base and solidify our strong foundation in the Kansas City community for generations to come.

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.

Your gift allows us to continue giving back to the community, and keeps our organization strong and vibrant.
