Johnson County’s 2018 ArtsKC campaign collected $15,722 to support a wide range of arts organizations and programs throughout the Kansas City metropolitan region, including Johnson County. The ArtsKC Fund is managed by the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City.
The 2018 campaign raised nearly $700 in merchandise sales, $2,100 in special events and more than $13,000 in individual contributions from Johnson County employees.
Department awards were presented to Human Services, first place; Human Resouces, second place; and Corrections, third place.
The ArtsKC Fund campaign is one of three designated charities supported by Johnson County Government. The others include the annual Feed the Need campaign to support local food pantries and the county’s campaign on behalf of the United Way of Greater Kansas City.
