Black and Veatch Contributes to Pediatric Medical Center
Black and Veatch said today that over the past 26 years, it has donated more than $4.8 million to Children’s Mercy Kansas City, including money from its 24th Charity Golf Tournament this week. Since the tournament’s beginning, money raised during the golf outing at Shadow Glen Golf Club in Olathe, Kansas, has gone directly to Children’s Mercy to assist a number of causes.
Following a two-year delay brought on by Covid-19, this week’s event saw the Black and Veatch Foundation donate $120,000 to Children’s Mercy to aid in the fight against paediatric illnesses.

According to Mario Azar, Chairman & CEO of Black and Veatch, “This important community event, which has a strong legacy to past and current employee owners and the support of many clients, suppliers, and partners, is one of the many ways Black and Veatch is active in the global communities we operate in.” It was wonderful to reunite with our business associates at an event that supports Children’s Mercy’s many committed medical staff members who are delivering life-saving treatment and cancer research that benefits the community.
Black and Veatch has previously raised money through the tournament to finance the building and refurbishment of Children’s Mercy East in Eastern Jackson County as well as Children’s Mercy Broadway, in addition to the hospital’s Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine. The business has additionally helped CARE.
