In addition to providing reliable utility services to our community, BPU and its employees continually give back to Wyandotte County through volunteer work, civic support, financial assistance, and philanthropic work.
One such way is through the Kansas City BPU Employee Foundation, a group of BPU employee volunteers who regularly and consistently donate their time and money to causes and charities within our community. The BPU Employee Foundation's mission is to increase participation among employees of the BPU in providing for the human needs in the Kansas City, Kansas community and the resources to meet those needs.
This all-volunteer organization has sponsored and participated in a number of annual events, including Easter Egg Hunts for senior citizens, Christmas in the City for children in public housing, Back-to-School funding and equipment drives and helping coordinate BPU's annual United Way Campaigns.
Giving back to the community
Since 2007, the Foundation has raised and donated $25,000 to area organizations including Coronado Middle School, CASA, Armourdale Renewal, the CLJ Foundation, homeless students in USD 500 and 202, Friends of Yates, the Kaw Valley Center and many more.
More important than the dollars raised, the Foundation has donated hundreds of hours of volunteer time, including collecting canned goods and bottled water for victims of the Haiti Earthquake, delivering Thanksgiving meals and participating in numerous Days of Caring.
The BPU Employee Foundation, Inc. relies on both financial contributions and in-kind donations from individuals and businesses to provide service within our community.
If you or your organization might benefit from the Foundation's work or if you're interested in assisting this proactive human interest group, please contact us.
