COMMUNITY GRANTS

Each year, the ASFGKC fulfills its mission of supporting the Kansas City metropolitan HIV/AIDS community by providing grants to those who serve our diverse communities’ specialized needs. Since its inception, the Community Fund has allocated hundreds of thousands of dollars to various organizations and programs that support people affected with or at risk of HIV/AIDS.

Funding for grant awards is cultivated throughout the year, beginning in April with our largest fundraiser, AIDS Walk Kansas City, and ending with World AIDS Day in December. Additionally, various small-to-large fundraising events occur monthly throughout Kansas City with board members, community members, and corporate sponsors. Support for ASFGKC means additional small, community-based organizations that provide critical services to vulnerable individuals living with HIV/AIDS, is possible.

We are proud to have supported the following organizations:

  • Guadalupe Center provides bilingual case management services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS but is not limited to Hispanics
  • The Camping Connection’s Camp Umoja provided a family-centered camping experience in an outdoor environment for families and their children living with HIV/AIDS
  • The Coterie Theater‘s “Dramatic AIDS Education Project,” a collaborative effort with the Department of Preventative Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center, which is produced as an interactive program and workshop made up of medical students and professional actors and presented for free at area schools
  • Troost Midtown Community Center to incorporate an AIDS education and prevention series into their existing youth programs
  • Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA) to provide HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention instruction to clients with developmental disabilities
