The purpose of the Challenge Grants award program is to provide matching funds, up to a maximum of $5,000 at the discretion of the Philanthropy Committee, to support projects that will complement and/or enhance the reputation, image and ideals of The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) to celebrate, teach, preserve and promote barbeque as a culinary technique, sport and art form.
