Businesses Giving Back
Each year, Truman Heartland recognizes a corporate citizen whose generosity in charitable giving tremendously impacts the region we serve. Our community is a generous one, and we consider it a privilege to recognize those companies whose philanthropy makes our community a better place to live and serve.
The 2022 Corporate Citizen of the Year is Summit Homes.
Summit Homes is the largest new home builder in Kansas City. They are a Berkshire-Hathaway-backed team that has built more than 2,000 beautiful homes since opening in 2002. The Summit Homes team has won more than 120 awards for industry excellence, but the company’s real heart lies in its commitment to building and supporting strong and healthy children and communities.
What started as a St. Jude’s Dream Home build grew into more than a decade of corporate charitable giving. However, Summit Homes does more than offer financial support to organizations making a difference in our communities; leadership and staff are actively engaged in volunteering, giving freely of their time and expertise. Summit Homes walks the talk when it comes to philanthropy, from hosting career days so kids can learn about construction trade opportunities to distributing diapers for local families. Drumm Farm Center for Children, Harvesters, Boys & Girls Clubs of Kansas City, Happy Bottoms, and Hope Haven are just a few recipients of Summit Homes’ generosity.
