What is the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City?
The AIDS Service Foundation works to raise money and awareness through AIDS WALK Kansas City and the World AIDS Day observances for organizations that provide shelter, medical care and emergency services for the more than 5,700 men, women and children in Kansas City affected by HIV/AIDS. Contributions made to the AIDS Service Foundation benefit equally the KC Care Health Center, SAVE Inc., Thrive Health Connection and Hope Care Center.
In addition, a portion of the money raised through these events is distributed to the ASF Community Fund. The ASF Community Fund awards grants to not-for-profit organizations that service the specialized needs of the diverse communities dealing with HIV/AIDS, provide support to their families and friends, and/or promote education and prevention.
All funds raised by AIDS WALK Kansas City and the World AIDS Day observances stay in Kansas City.

AIDS Walk Open
The pub crawl everybody’s talking about! We will not hold the Open in March this year due to COVID-19. However, we will hold it this fall! The date will be announced later this spring. The AIDS WALK Open is THE premier mini-golf pub-crawl in KC! Bring your team of four golfers and visit a number of bars (each with their own mini-golf hole) and compete for some fantastic prizes! A free bus service takes you from bar to bar, with Miller Lite drink specials and opportunities to make new friends. This is an event to dress up for, and remember to bring your own putter and balls. You can find more info and register here!
We walk together and honor those who’ve lost their fight to AIDS. The Memorial Team leads the AIDS Walk with white and red banners, each one with the name of someone we’ve lost. These names are also placed on the walkers shirts. For more information, click here.
World AIDS Day
Every year on December 1, World AIDS Day, campaigners from all over the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. We have luncheons and events to highlight our achievements and keep an awareness of the danger of HIV and AIDS. Our campaign to stop AIDS is not just on World AIDS Day, but throughout the year.
Parties and Events
We celebrate our community and each other with events and celebrations where we gather to raise both money and awareness of HIV/AIDS in our community.
Where does the money I raise go?
The money that is raised by the AIDS Service Foundation's events is primarily divided between four organizations:
KC Care Health Center
The KC Care Health Center exists to promote health and wellness by providing quality health care services, at no charge, to people without access to basic care. Today the clinic provides basic health care services in general medicine, HIV prevention and primary care, behavioral health, and dentistry.
SAVE, Inc. provides comprehensive housing solutions to empower socially and medically disadvantaged people to improve their health and lead stable lives with personal dignity.
Thrive Health Connection
A regional healthcare leader and influencer, Thrive Health Connection, formerly GSP, provides inclusive, holistic and integrated health and wellness services to individuals affected by HIV and other STIs, LGBTQ communities, and those seeking a welcoming and affirming healthy and community center.
Hope Care Center
Hope Care Center is a non-profit skilled, long-term-care nursing facility for persons challenged by HIV/AIDS. Our small size enables us to create an environment that is more like "home" than an institution.
What is the Community Fund?
This fund awards grants to not-for-profit organizations that help others dealing with HIV/AIDS, provide support to their families and friends, and/or promote education and prevention. Click here for more info.
