When you have been involved in business for a long time, it seems like anything is possible, and limitations are overcome with time or resources. This is particularly the case in the always developing tech industry, and in working at a rapid pace with a small team. However, for many inner city kids – and those on the poverty line – the possibility of entrepreneurial success, of making it in the working world, and of rising above low income circumstances is all too often just a pipe dream. Our team is committed to making a tangible difference in our Kansas City community, donating time, money, and talents to many organizations. Our main giving opportunities are listed below, and we encourage you to contact us to see how you can help make a difference with us!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City
Founded originally as a Kansas City Jaycee project in 1964, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City (BBBSKC) has served more than 20,000 at-risk youth in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Solomon Consulting Group has team members on the Board of Director’s of this brilliant organization, and has Match Makers and Big’s! BBBSKC believes that youth who have a positive adult influence in their lives are better able to reach their full potential and reduce the number of drop-outs and juvenile court cases.
Genesis School – Promise Academy
At Genesis School, they believe all children deserve a fresh start on their educational journey. They believe learning should meet individual needs and that an effective education requires a partnership between school and parent. Genesis is the only charter school in the Kansas City area serving at-risk and high-risk inner city youth during the vulnerable years from kindergarten to 8th grade.
Solomon Consulting Group helps with book donations and fund raising for this school that helps promote education and well-being for hundreds of ‘at-risk’ youth each year. By helping with the school’s mission, we are helping serve ours too. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about how you can help support kids in the Kansas City Metro.
Beds for Everybody – COR
Solomon Consulting Group is an active supporter of the Beds Program through Church of the Resurrection, and provides new beds to children who don’t have a one of their own in Kansas City urban and suburban communities. The purpose is to recognize and address the physical need for sleep, and providing a sense of comfort, rest, and peace. Our employees help build frames, help with linen drives, and help load and deliver a great nights rest whenever a scheduled ‘bed party’ date is set.
