Welcome to the Filipino Cultural Center Foundation!


The Filipino Cultural Center Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to foster, promote, and support Filipino cultural and community programs in the greater Kansas City area; and to establish and support a building fund for the Filipino Cultural Center, the "home" of our local Filipino community.


We have three focus areas to support our mission

The Endowment Fund

Support the future generations of Filipino Culture

The Filipino Cultural Center is the central point for all area Filipinos, providing a place to meet, practice, celebrate, and organize many events and cultural activities. It's a source of pride and serves as a testament to the determination and good will of those who made this beatiful facility possible.

The Filipino Cultural Center Foundation (FCCF) recognizes the crucial and unifying role played by the Cultural Center. To ensure the property will exist and be available to celebrate Filipino culture for future generations, the Filipino Cultural Center Foundation Endowment Fund was created.

Why we need the Endowment Fund

The age of the properties, combined with the changing financial and occupational demographics of the membership, will create a heavy burden on the future members of the Filipino Association of Greater Kansas City to meet the increasing expense of maintaining and imporoving the properties. By using investment income from the Endowment Fund, we can eliminate the burden of major maintenance events. Future generations can return to fundraising for the fun of being together and to support their activities and normal expenses.

How to contribute to our Future

There are several ways you can help to grow the fund to ensure future Filipino Americans in the community to have the benefits of the Cultural Center experience to explore and celebrate the rich Filipino cultural heritage:

  • Designating the Endowment Fund for a testamentary gift in your will or estate plan.
  • Continue a legacy by designating the Filipino Cultural Center Foundation Fund in lieu of flowers or gifts
  • Direct contribution, by presenting a check to any FCCF member or mailed to one of the addresses below
