Mission, KS – Support Kansas City, a local nonprofit providing business and administrative support services to other nonprofits, was awarded the Regional Business Excellence Award by the Kansas Department of Commerce. Support Kansas City was chosen as one of four winners in the region and twenty three winners statewide. The award is part of the Department’s annual celebration of Kansas businesses and their contributions to communities and the state economy.

“The Business Appreciation Month awards provide a great opportunity to honor the many outstanding businesses in our state,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “The finalists, regional winners and merit award winners have helped grow the Kansas economy, create jobs and invest in their communities.”

Support Kansas City was selected alongside prominent for-profit businesses and nonprofit organizations that were chosen to receive the award this year. “We are grateful for this recognition by the Kansas Department of Commerce. So often nonprofit work is not recognized for the professionalism we incorporate into our business models. We share this recognition with all the nonprofits we serve,” said Debra Box, Executive Director of Support Kansas City.
