MOCSA – Giving Circle

For more than 16 years, Erik Bergrud and Kimberlee Ried have been loyal supporters of MOCSA. They have served as community support committee chairs and are members of the organization’s Giving Circle. These enthusiastic donors shared, “We are honored to support MOCSA, whose activities and programs improve individuals’ lives, elevate awareness of sexual abuse and assault, and make our region a healthier and safer place to live and work. We believe in Kansas City, and we believe in MOCSA.” The Giving Circle is a monthly donation program to assure stable funding for the organization. Members receive invitations to attend MOCSA’s Annual Gratitude Reception, special mission updates, and discounts on tickets to signature events.
