2012 Year in Review

Ron Bruch, Independence School District (ret)

Thirty years of purposeful giving, made possible by YOU. In this statement, we celebrate our donors, volunteers and leadership of our Board and Advisory Boards. You have made the last 30 years a success in improving the lives of Eastern Jackson County citizens. Your planning, volunteerism and charitable giving will continue to connect resources and leaders in philanthropy to build and sustain strong communities. Year after year, THCF and our highly qualified investment committee have shown we are strong stewards of donor contributions. In 2012, our pooled assets had a 12.7% return on investment, enabling us to fund thousands of dollars in grants and scholarships. In all, total grants from all funds equaled $2.8 million, including Donor Advised Funds, scholarships and our annual community grants process. In scholarships, $172,225 was awarded from 69 scholarship funds to 157 students ranging from high school seniors to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing higher education degrees, including technical schools. Our donors’ dedication to education is witnessed through these funds. The annual grants process awards funds that donors have entrusted to the Board to administer. Through our Grants committee, with representatives from our four Advisory Boards and input from the Youth Advisory Council, THCF awarded $180,000 to 47 nonprofit organizations. We are honored to play a role in funding the good work of these projects. We believe connections to our youth will enable this foundation to stay strong for years to come. True to this belief, we have an active Youth Advisory Council (YAC) which aids our grants committee and provides valuable insight into youth-serving applicants. These 122 youth from 11 different high schools also raised $4,500 through their 3rd annual Skate for Change. Lastly, our Community for All Ages Coalition, now boasting more than 55 members, was formed to address the issues and needs facing our aging community. Real progress is underway with the development of the new Care Connection website in partnership with Mid-Continent Public Library. Set to launch in second quarter of 2013, this website will provide easy access to information on services available to Eastern Jackson County seniors, their families and those who wish to volunteer. It has been a pleasure serving as Chairman of the Board this past year. On behalf of THCF, thank you for your generous gift of funds, time and talents as we continue our mission for the next 30 years and beyond.

A Lasting Legacy all Thanks to You. Heartland Legacy Society The Heartland Legacy Society is made up of more than 90 members who are leaving a permanent legacy of giving to area communities through gifts from their estate plans.

Connecting to Support our Aging Population.

Coalition for a Community for All Ages The Community for All Ages Coalition works to ensure our Eastern Jackson County community is collaboratively and proactively working together to ensure we are prepared for the challenges and opportunities created by a doubling of the age 65+ population in our community in the next 20 years. Goal #1: To work together as a coalition to ensure every senior (and/or their family members) who needs services or wishes to volunteer in the Eastern Jackson County community knows about and has easy access to quality information and clearly understands how to access the resources available. Additionally, we strive to identify gaps in needed services and resources and work together to address those gaps.

Progress • Created a Caregiver Connection website • Committee lead is Cindy Cavanah • Include Services for Seniors – whether for profit or nonprofit • Take an Angie’s List approach using feedback from service users • May 2012 – Mid-Continent Public Library offered to partner with us to create the website, thanks to Steve Potter, Executive Director, and Susan Wray, Assistant Director of Libraries, and their IT team • By year-end, the website was built and we are now populating it with data • Goal is to unveil the website 2nd quarter of 2013 Goal #2: To work as a coalition to ensure seniors have access to affordable transportation services so their mobility and independence is not unduly limited when they no longer have access or the desire to drive.

Progress • New committee is chaired by Barbara Koirtyohann • Held first meeting in November and will make important progress in 2013 We now have 55 members of the Coalition, which is led by Jim Pryde, past Chair of THCF Board. Today, 1 in 8 Americans is 65 or older. By 2020, 1 in 6 Americans will be 65 or older, and by 2030, the numbers are expected to grow to 1 in 5. According to AARP, every day 8,000 Baby Boomers are turning 65. Assuming the rate of aging is the same in Kansas City as it is nationally, approximately 50 people a day or 1,500 per month are reaching age 65 in our metropolitan community. By mid-century, for the first time in human history, the number of people over 60 will outnumber children under the age of 14.

We Owe it All to YOU. 2012 Charitable Funds

Truman Heartland Community Foundation’s mission is to improve area communities by promoting and serving private giving for the public good. We do this by growing charitable giving in Eastern Jackson County, connecting donors to causes important to them and leading our region in addressing important community needs. The funds listed on the pages that follow were created to help many in our community accomplish their goals. Over the last 30 years, our family of donors (an estimated 1,000 individuals) has granted more than $35.5 million to our Eastern Jackson County community and beyond. Donors have also given more than $66 million in charitable donations to the Community Foundation. Today, you can also begin using the Community Foundation to realize your philanthropic goals and leave a lasting legacy for years to come.

Donor-Advised Funds

Having a donor-advised fund is like having your own personal foundation … only better. It’s easy to establish, you can involve your family, support all your favorite charities and learn about new ways to support your community. Many corporations also use the donor-advised fund to streamline their corporate giving programs. Anderson Family Foundation Fund Jerry and Doreen Benton Family Foundation C. Glenn & Ada M.
