COWRY SHELL LEADERSHIP SOCIETY

THE COWRY SHELL LEADERSHIP SOCIETY represents the pinnacle of annual philanthropic support for the Kansas African American Museum (TKAAM). The Society serves to honor and recognize all those making gifts of $1,000 or more during the year (July 1 to June 30).

 

Sharing the Kansas African American experience with each generation is our mission. It is our work. We believe that these experiences can help each generation address challenges facing communities and our State. With your charitable gift to the Cowry Shell Leadership Society this important work is made possible.

Thanks to our 2023 A Taste of Africa Sponsors
