Spark Change for a Better Kansas City

Thank you to all of our sponsors and speakers for making C3KC 2022 a success!

C3KC is a collaborative event convening stakeholders from the corporate, civic, and community sectors to inspire, educate and spark change for a better Kansas City. C3KC is also a major fundraiser for the Junior League of Kansas City, MO.  In 2021, C3KC earned an award from the Association of Junior Leagues International in recognition of its accomplishments toward facilitating conversations impacting the three sectors and raising substantial funds that have been channeled back into the metro area.
