The Spencer Fane Charitable Giving Program in Kansas City was created to provide significant support to select local nonprofit arts organizations through a $50,000 donation to each recipient over the course of three years. The program was designed as a rotation so that one new recipient will enter the program each year, with another exiting upon completion of its three-year cycle.
