    HKC in Action.

    Business Members/Sponsors

    Historic Kansas City receives annual program support from the donors listed below. We thank them! Without their ongoing support we would not be able to continue our important advocacy, education and preservation work.

    HKC is the only local non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to promote the preservation of historic buildings and landmarks in Kansas City as well as educate the community about the importance of historic preservation.  Whether it is to provide opportunities to reach a high-quality audience or to support economic growth or to protect tangible history, we know our events and outreach initiatives provide an atmosphere that is unmatched in their ability to bring together like-minded companies and individuals who have an interest in making historic preservation economically viable. As the design and construction industry continues to evolve and grow, relationships are increasingly important. HKC’s annual sponsorship program is specifically focused on supporting the development of strategic connections between our members, followers, and sponsors.

    FIVE reasons why YOU should be a business sponsor:

    • Give more and get more every month! As an HKC Annual Sponsor, your firm will gain multiple exclusive opportunities to reach HKC members, followers, firms, and allied professionals while demonstrating your commitment to promoting a high-quality built environment.
    • Exposure: Each year, HKC promotes outreach initiatives and networking events which offer unique opportunities to highlight your business directly to the local preservation community and to other participating industry leaders.
    • Positioning: Support the program areas that matter most to your business while positioning your company as a leader and trusted information source. These are excellent opportunities to differentiate your firm from your competition by aligning your business mission and goals with ours.
    • Relationship-Building: Use this opportunity to build long-term relationships that count. Develop the key relationships needed for your company/firm to maximize its potential in an ever-more competitive industry.
    • Deductible Business Expense: HKC is a 501-c- 3 organization. All or part of your sponsorship may be tax-deductible as a charitable contribution for state or federal tax purposes. Consult with your tax advisor.
