We accomplish this by fostering partnerships, leveraging investments, creating systemic changes and transforming the environment.
We're still beaming with excitement and pride! Greater Kansas City LISC's first annual event, Thrive was a huge success. Over 300 people came together to celebrate our six honorees, enjoy delicious KC eats, and toast to community development in Kansas City. To all of our honorees, sponsors, artists & entertainers, and all the organizations and individuals in Kansas City who work tirelessly to make our city thrive, we say, ‘Thank You!’
The Development & Communications Officer will successfully promote the mission and achieve the funding goals of Greater Kansas City LISC by securing financial support from foundations, corporations, government and individuals. The Officer also manages LISC’s local communications and public relations as they relate to the promotion of the organization, its activities, and the fundraising objectives.
The Kansas City Catalytic Urban Redevelopment (KC-CUR) initiative is currently one of Kansas City’s primary strategies for scaling up redevelopment on the city’s east side, focusing on both the People and the Place. Now, thanks in part to funding from the City and Hall Family Foundation, some significant milestones are being achieved to accelerate the strategy implementation. A Project Manager will be hired to be the primary coordinator, strategist, and advocate for KC-CUR and an RFP has been issued to solicit proposals from consultants to complete this Revitalization Scenario for the 31st and Troost Priority Area.
