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.


The William T. Kemper Foundation – Commerce Bank, Trustee – and a group of long term donors and board members have committed to match 100% of every year-end donation made by December 31st, up to $25,000.

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.


Please support Historic Kansas City and our efforts by making a generous donation today.
