For more than 30 years, the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City has been committed to eliminating the stigma, suffering, and spread of HIV/AIDS. As a leader in the fight against this disease, the Foundation provides educational and financial resources to four local organizations that directly support the more than 5,700 men, women, and children in Kansas City affected by HIV/AIDS. Your generosity allows KC Care Health Center, SAVE Inc., Thrive Health Connection, and Hope Care Center to continue to diagnose, treat, and provide holistic support.
In addition to supporting these organizations, the Foundation also contributes to its Aids Service Foundation Community Fund. This fund awards grants to not-for-profit organizations that serve the specialized needs of the diverse communities dealing with HIV/AIDS, provide support to their families, and/or promote education and prevention.
