The Power of Partnership

It’s a big IDEA. It’s innovative. And ambitious. We need your help to turn the idea of bright futures for all into IDEA Space KC.
Your support and partnership will make an immeasurable impact on our community’s future, and allow IDEA Space to open its doors and welcome Kansas City’s future workforce and leaders.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest learning disruption in memory. A generations’s academic progress and mental health are at risk and we must act now to prevent a worsening learning crisis. IDEA Space will play a vital and unique part in the region's educational recovery, a place where children can regain lost learning and build new knowledge and skills through hands-on, experiential learning essential for their success now and in the future.

Your gift will allow us to empower learners and educators today to create the Kansas City of tomorrow.


Shane A. Foster, President, IDEA Space KC

“Words are not sufficient to express our thanks, as your gifts to IDEA Space are life changing for the young boys and girls of Kansas City.”
