The Philanthropy Awards Luncheon is Nonprofit Connect's signature event, when we come together as a community to recognize extraordinary leaders in philanthropy. With more than 1,000 members of the nonprofit and for-profit community attending every year, the Luncheon is Kansas City's oldest and largest celebration of giving. The funds raised at the Luncheon allow Nonprofit Connect to continue to offer education, resources and networking so that area nonprofit organizations can more effectively achieve their missions.
