Individual Giving

As an individual donor to ArtsKC, you provide programs and services that support Kansas City’s entire arts industry! We simply could not do this work without you. So, here are just a few things you did with us this past year:

  • In July, you launched, a free service for artists and arts organizations to promote events and find new audience members. It’s also a free resource for you and your neighbors to find and support arts events of all kinds.
  • You funded more than 100 grants to artists and organizations across our region, on both sides of State Line, from Gardner to Platte City, and everywhere in between.
  • And in October, you commissioned the fifth regional Arts and Economic Prosperity Study from Americans for the Arts and distributed the findings through region-wide presentations, online resources and printed materials.

As our partner, you also receive exclusive benefits and backstage arts opportunities through the ArtsKC Encounter program.
