Singing Competition in Kansas City
11th Anniversary of KC SuperStar - Annual Fundraiser for The J
The J Needs Your Help, Now More Than Ever
KC SuperStar has been the major fundraiser for The J for the past 10 years. Our semi-finals will be virtual this June, and we are working on several options for our Finals. We ask for your support regardless of what the Finals may look like.
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused a financial crisis at The J. We have already lost more than $1 million in revenue and project that we could lose up to $3 million this year.
Your Donation to KC SuperStar Protects Our Staff
For more than 100 years our staff have provided high-quality programs and services for people of all ages – from the toddlers at The J’s accredited Child Development Center to the senior adults at the nationally accredited Heritage Center. We’ve gone out on a leap of faith and haven’t laid off our staff because our community knows how fortunate we are to have them working on our behalf. Help us continue to keep our excellent staff during this time. Proceeds from KCSS include support for our newly developed Staff & Sustainability Fund.
Your Donation to KC SuperStar Enriches The Lives of Those in Need
Hundreds of seniors, children, and families depend on The J for financial assistance. With more than 30 million Americans filing for unemployment, the need for financial assistance will be even higher this year. Thank you for helping us to build and strengthen our strong, vibrant, and inclusive community that enhances wellness, meaning, and joy, based on Jewish values and culture.
KC SuperStar Key Facts
Last year The J provided $540,000 in scholarships, including $21,500 in scholarships for the KCSS performers. For the first time, there will be online voting from June 1-10 to pick one of the finalists. A live Facebook event on June 15 will announce the Top 10 KCSS Finalists.
