A testimonial to the excellence of KC Creative Video from Junior Achievement of Middle America (2013)
"From the first moment I met Rick Mundy and listened to his passionate description of his vision to help nonprofit agencies tell their stories, my mind and heart were captivated. Time has proven the validity of that first impression.
I know from first-hand experience volunteering in our metropolitan community for over 50 years, that thousands of Kansas City area nonprofit organizations have neither the human nor financial resources to adequately articulate their mission, vision and plan. And yet, this is critical to attract the ever-decreasingly available philanthropic dollars against the reality of ever-increasing needs. With the establishment of KC Creative in 2007, Rick identified those very real needs that can hamper the growth and stability of nonprofit organizations, and launched perhaps one of the most unique problem-solving resources available to them.
I have had the pleasure and privilege of viewing some of the very creative videos that KC Creative has produced. They are gripping, focused and compelling windows into the activities of these organizations. Rick is certainly one of the most creative geniuses I've met. He has a huge heart and a willingness to make enormous personal sacrifices to substantially help the underserved organizations that answer human needs on a daily, sometimes hourly basis."
Adele Hall, Kansas City philanthropist

"You are doing some amazing things with your company. So many non-profits have no voice but do such great work. Now with KC Cares you have given them the exposure they deserve."
Cynthia Smith, formerly of Wayside Waifs
"Thank you for a fabulous time in our interview yesterday on KC Cares. It was much more fun than I anticipated! We are so grateful for the opportunity to share the Stop Hunger Now mission and presence in KC. Your professionalism and spirited banter helped relax us and drew out our passion for feeding the hungry. As you know from working with hundreds of non-profits, that passion is what fuels us from day to day."
Courtney James, Stop Hunger Now
"KC Creative is literally a game changer because they help level the playing field for nonprofits that don't have unlimited budgets. Their model has the potential for real empowerment and revolutionary, positive change."
Richard Freiburghouse, VFW Foundation
"Thank you, thank you for allowing me speak about Project Walk Kansas City. You guys made it very easy and a very comfortable atmosphere. Would love to do it again sometime."

"Sheffield Place has benefitted from our association with KC Creative. All our projects have been handled by designers at costs well below market rates. Each project has been expertly executed, creative, and appropriate for us."
David Hanzlick, Sheffield Place
"Karen and I truly enjoyed visiting with you on KC Cares. You both made us feel very comfortable and asked great questions allowing us to share our most pertinent information. Thank you for all you do to increase awareness of the efforts of so many great non-profits in the community."
Barb McNeile, Johnson County Christmas Bureau
"When I first heard of KC Creative, I was skeptical. I called them after losing our website service provider and a long, unfruitful bid process for a new vendor. To my surprise, they not only responded immediately, they listened to my needs, paired me with a professional who 'gets it,' and provided a comprehensive, value-driven proposal under budget! I got everything I wanted because KC Creative was interested in working with me, not for me. I'm sold!"
Stacie J. Bratcher, Immacolata Manor
"KC Creative has been instrumental in assisting us with crafting consistent messaging for our constituents, and in fine tuning our brand as a whole."
Donny E. Smith, Community Housing of Wyandotte County
"When our community support committee learned of KC Creative's focus, we were intrigued with the direction of the organization and the multiple levels of needs it was meeting in our community. Our decision to fund this organization was based on KC Creative's innovative approach to meeting a need for nonprofits to increase their capacity while also helping an often under-employed professional group."
