Moneytalk Financial Foundations
Helping families become financially stable.
School Supply Fundraiser
Over 1,059 students have received new backpacks and school supplies for Nieman & Shawanoe elementary schools in the Shawnee Mission School District. Both of these schools are Title 1 meaning they have a very high percentage of families in poverty.
The total cost was $38,142.78. We are still raising funds to pay for this blessing to these students, families, and teachers. Click on Learn More to find out how we were able to reduce the overall cost by over 20%.
Kansas Speedway Fundraiser
We need volunteers to help work a concession stand at the Kansas Speedway’s Hollywood Casino 400 race on Sunday, Oct 18th (reschedule date is Monday, Oct 19th).
The funds raised will be used toward the school supply expense deficit. The supplies have already been purchased, packed, delivered to the schools, and distributed to the students (except one item still in shipping). However, the individuals who previously committed to help fund this project are no longer responding and we are stuck scrambling to raise the funds. One vendor is allowing us to make weekly payments as long as we are paid off by mid December.
KS Community Service Income Tax Credit
Kansas offers state income tax credits as an incentive for individuals and businesses to support large projects for non-profits they would not be able to accomplish otherwise.
The donor receives 50% of the value of the donated money, services, stocks, bonds, personal property, and real estate in income tax credits for that tax year’s Kansas state income tax. It is truly a win-win situation.
Grant application due May 31, 2021.
Sponsor & Volunteer opportunities
Check out the Support opportunities available for upcoming events, workshops, academy sessions, and more.
While many events benefit by having volunteers, there are usually financial opportunities to support, donate, or sponsor as well.
