Establishing the Foundation

An agreement between the City of Roeland Park and the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation establishing a Roeland Park Community Foundation account was reached and unanimously approved by the City Council on November 18th, 2013.

The City of Roeland Park has also established a board which will oversee the city's foundation account.

Purpose of the Foundation

The Community Foundation allows the city to accept funds from individual donors or businesses who are interested in contributing tax-deductible donations to the city. The city can use these funds for non-operational uses, such as community events, public art, and city park amenities.
