Change 4 KC

A vibrant startup community requires everyone to chip in. Join us this #GivingTuesday as we create #Change4KC.

Giving Tuesday is upon us once again!

Today, the Kansas City Startup Foundation (KCSF) is asking to be one of the causes you support as we continue championing and connecting Kansas City’s startup ecosystem.

In true startup fashion, we’re coloring outside the box and re-engineering #GivingTuesday from a single day of giving to be the launch of our new ongoing micro-giving initiative dubbed #Change4KC.

How does it work?

We’ve teamed up with Kansas based startup Donate Your Change (DYC) so you can easily “donate your change” on everyday purchases. DYC simply rounds up your daily credit and debit card purchases which become donations to KCSF. These daily #Change4KC micro-contributions will directly benefit the #StartupKC community by allowing KCSF to make more connections, create more experiences, and tell more stories.

  • The secure system works with over 18,000 banks and credit card issuers nationwide.
  • Options allow you to set your total daily support limit to a level that works best for you.
  • The dashboard shows all of your micro-donations so you can track your overall community support.
  • Contributions are tax-deductible.*
  • Visit!/faq for additional details.
What does it support?

Contributions through the #Change4KC campaign will directly support the Kansas City Startup Foundation and our work which includes the following programs:

Having grown out of the grassroots efforts of the Kansas City Startup Village five years ago, KCSF embodies the same “Give First, Get Later” mindset. Now, we ask for support from the very community members we serve every day. A little from everyone will go a long way to ensure the continued growth of a resourceful and accessible startup community for all. #ZeroBarriers

Thank you for joining us on the journey. It takes a village!
