HOW TO HELP
Our financial assistance program is available for working men and women who support themselves, their families and their communities and are unable to qualify for help anywhere else. Currently our largest source of funding is United Way of Greater Kansas City. Elected payroll deductions through the United Way, Combined Federal Campaign, and Employee Giving Programs provide a great resource of funding for Working Families’ Friend. Other sources include donations or sponsorships from individuals, local unions, and corporations, and a variety of grants. It is an ongoing goal to widely diversify funding sources in order to serve a broader segment of working people and to offer a wider variety of programs and services. Part of that goal is to expand awareness of Working Families’ Friend and the services we provide to working people.
If you are in search of an upstanding charity to donate to in the Kansas City area we appreciate your consideration!

Penny Per Hour Program
One unique funding program we use is the Penny an Hour Program. To become a member a local union or company agrees to pay one penny per hour worked by each member or employee. On average, this amounts to $20.80 per person per year. Fifteen local unions and companies currently give to Working Families’ Friend at this level. Many others give at other levels.Learn More
