    Double your impact!
    All Annual Appeal donations up to $25,000 received through December 31st will be matched DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR!

    Happy Holidays! Historic Kansas City wishes the best for you and your family in these unprecedented times. This year, we have all had to find a new normal. In that, Historic Kansas City has been no exception. Our generous community of donors enable Historic Kansas City to continue to advocate for Kansas City, so thank you for considering a tax-deductible donation to support our work.

    Thanks to the generosity of the William T. Kemper Foundation – Commerce Bank, Trustee all Annual Appeal donations up to $25,000 received through December 31st will be matched DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR! Make any size donation or membership and it will be doubled, giving HKC the funds needed to save the places that matter to Kansas Citians – houses, churches, schools, downtown structures, neighborhood commercial areas, and vintage neighborhoods. By saving places that matter to Kansas City, we reconnect people to heritage and revitalize communities.

    We recognize that you are most likely lending a hand to many critical efforts. If your circumstances allow, we need your help to continue protecting the places and stories that matter to all of us. Your support of HKC will help secure our greatest assets: our dedicated staff. While we’ve trimmed our expenses as much as possible, we still need critical support to remain viable and whole. No in person events were held during 2020 or 2021 due to COVID resulting in a significant loss in revenue. Not having face to face events and meetings slowed down our ability to continue to build our membership and solicit financial support. But HKC has not been idle. We actively secured two forgivable loans from the Paycheck Protection Program, increased our corporate sponsorship support, and raised a record total in the annual appeal including a record of new donations. Yet, our financial future remains uncertain. This is really difficult.

    HKC helps you reimagine, rescue, and revive meaningful places. We save places because they stir us. They’re inspiring examples of Kansas City art and spirit, ingenuity, and craft. They heighten our sense of place and connect us through the generations. They help us remember what’s important in our lives. We save places people will use and enjoy today, adapting vintage places rather than throwing them away, to keep connections to the past and to spare the landfills. We believe that, like hard work and hospitality, revitalization is a real Kansas City value. We save places because restored landmarks are economic drivers. They improve property values, promote tourism, and inject vitality into neighborhoods and business districts. They create and support local jobs. Their distinctiveness attracts the workforce of the future. Perhaps most importantly, we save places because they’re the sites that draw us in and hold us fast. They’re the places among which we live, work, explore, and pass on what we’ve learned. Saving places. It’s our passion and our purpose. Through preserving and understanding our past we explore and advance our unity and better grasp our shared heritage.

    Your support of HKC will help secure our greatest assets: our dedicated staff.
