$2-million Challenge Grant to the National WWI Museum and Memorial

The National WWI Museum and Memorial (Kansas City) has been issued a $2-million challenge grant from the Mabee Foundation in support of a larger $19.5-million gallery refresh project. This grant will be issued to the Museum and Memorial if $4.4 million is raised toward the gallery refresh project by April 2023. The gallery refresh project is a multi-year effort that aims to create a richer and more immersive visitor experience by refreshing and expanding the galleries and access to the Museum and Memorial’s collection. The project comprises renovations totaling 30,000-square feet and new construction totaling 7,200-square feet. The first phase of the project’s lower level construction includes a staircase for easier access and a new Open Study Collections Center. This exciting project is part of the Memorial and Museum’s $50-million campaign for A Second Century.

Groundbreaking at Children's Safety Center

Children’s Safety Center of Washington County (Springdale, Ark.) has broken ground on its new facility. The 15,000-square-foot building is three times the size of its current space. CSC is a child-friendly, family-centered organization that coordinates the investigation, prosecution process and treatment services to prevent further trauma to children affected by sexual and physical abuse. The organization empowers children to overcome abuse and begin to trust, hope, and heal. They do this through their five free programs: advocacy, therapy, forensic medical exams, forensic interviews and prevention/education training. The Children’s Safety Center plays an essential role in the community – providing services, building relationships and serving as a bridge to healing for victims of child abuse.

$400,000 Challenge Grant for The Hope Center

The Hope Center (Kansas City) has been given a $400,000 challenge grant from the Hall Family Foundation toward the nonprofit’s capital campaign, Hope at the Center. The gift is contingent on The Hope Center raising 50% of its total capital goal. The Hope Center provides asset-based programs and opportunities for sustainable growth and development where children, youth and families can flourish on Kansas City’s east side. The campaign will provide capital investments and five years of operating support toward programs and services.
