Give Back in Kansas
Give Back Recognizes Peter and Veronica Mallouk
Give Back is fortunate to have the support of Peter & Veronica Mallouk, whose generous $3 million donation launched the program in Kansas, Give Back’s first publicly funded state.
As partners in both their careers and personal lives, the Mallouks have leveraged their financial success to support causes across the country with an emphasis in their home state of Kansas and the Greater Kansas City area. Peter and Veronica co-founded KC CAN!, an organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged children in Kansas City. Their contributions were recognized by the community when the Mallouks received the “Giving the Basics Human Dignity Award.” Peter’s wealth management firm, Creative Planning, has also supported charities across the country.
Give Back is honored to be chosen as the Mallouk’s next cause to champion. Their generous investment will continue their devoted mission to young people in Kansas, helping to provide sustainable futures for youth who’ve faced unimaginable hardship. Thank you for making an impact that will span generations!
“Veronica and I are strongly motivated to help those who don’t get a fair shake. We funded the Kansas arm of Give Back because we want to do our small part to help put as many kids as we can as close to the same starting line as other kids. We don’t believe someone’s probability of success should be dependent on their ZIP code of birth.” – Peter Mallouk
