Topeka Gives $9,005.74 to KCDC!
Donors at Topeka Gives, a fun day of giving sponsored by the Topeka Community Foundation, raised a total of $597,421.19 in 2018 for local nonprofit organizations. The Kansas Children's Discovery Center received $9,005.74 to support KCDC Cares programs, including Puzzle Pieces, Medial Warriors and Museums for All.
The children's museum set up a booth to share information about the organization and make sensory squeezers with water beads to demonstrate the science of how things can grow. Hundreds of Topekans dropped by the booth for serious fun!
Topeka Gives was created in 2013 as a one-time match day to encourage community giving and has grown each year. Topeka gives has generated $2.6 million dollars for local charities. Donors must attend in-person and may choose from over 150 participating nonprofit organizations. In 2018, over 1,334 donors contributed.
