Kansas City, MO – United Way of Greater Kansas City (UWGKC) has announced the selection of this year’s Impact 100 partners. This annual list is comprised of the hundred most vital health and human service organizations that United Way will invest and partner with to bring real-time solutions to the Kansas City community. SparkWheel was once again one of the partners selected.

Nonprofit organizations selected in this year’s Impact 100 submitted applications, which were reviewed by a diverse panel of community leaders. Each organization must meet a high bar of financial responsibility and be actively working to address the critical challenges facing the Kansas City region today.
