About Greater Horizons
A national leader in philanthropic services.
Greater Horizons is a leading provider of charitable solutions, working alongside donors and their advisors to develop philanthropic legacies. Through donor-advised funds and a comprehensive platform of charitable tools, our philanthropic experts help individuals, families, companies and institutions streamline their giving and provide research and guidance on charitable landscapes and giving strategies.
Greater Horizons is powered by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. The Community Foundation created Greater Horizons in 2004, to serve those who wish to use the Community Foundation’s products and services under a national entity.
