FAQs for nonprofits
The Nonprofit Expo is the nonprofit agency fair of the KCEGP. We hold multiple Expos across the county and on different dates. Spots for the Expo go fast, so please RSVP as soon as possible once invited. Usually you will only be able to attend one Expo location in order to spread out the opportunity to as many of our participating nonprofits as possible.

All donor information is automatically emailed out to contacts on file. If you are a member of a federation all reports go to the federation, please check with them.
These reports tell the nonprofit organization how much was pledged and raised during the most recent Annual Giving Drive. They are emailed out after the completion of the Annual Giving Drive during first quarter of the following fiscal year. For example, the 2020 Annual Giving Drive happened in October-December 2020, reports were then emailed first quarter 2021.
While Pledge Reports tell you what was pledged for the year, Donor Reports are what was "actually" donated. There can be differences for several reasons including employees leaving employment, mid-year changes, etc. But for the most part donor reports should reconcile back to the pledge reports. These are sent out quarterly around the same time as the checks.
Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your "safe" email list to ensure you receive all reports and notifications.
