KC Bear Mafia Grant Application

Are you a non-profit organization in the Kansas City metro area looking to help fund your LGBTQIA projects? The KC Bear Mafia is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that creates fundraising opportunities throughout the year culminating in our big party called “Bear Crossing”. Our fundraising activities help promote the bear community in Kansas City while also fostering awareness and support for the LGBTQIA and greater KC community. Last year after our events we were able to donate $7,500 to the LIKME Lighthouse. This year we’re hoping to spread the love and help where we can!

The form is available here.


That’s right! The time has come to register for Bear Crossing 2! If you came to the first one we’re doing it bigger and better this year and we can’t wait to see you again. Did you miss out last year? Don’t miss it this year! Early bird pricing is only $85 until April 19th! That gets you into all the events! We’ll have 3 after parties with plenty of food and alcohol at each! We’re going back to Coco Key Water Park to do Splashdance even bigger and better than last year! We’re also bringing in a great DJ for Furnado to dance and sweat to.

After August 1st you will only be able to register in person for $125 for the whole weekend. Still a great deal but you won’t get a t-shirt!

Also, we will be at Bear Bust at Hamburger Mary’s Kansas City this Saturday at 9pm selling our famous pudding shots and giving you a chance to purchase individual passes to FURNADO and SPLASHDANCE. So come and join us, watch some hot bear jello wrestling and get ready for BEAR CROSSING!
