Celebrate 40 Years of Minsky’s Pizza!
Four decades of making Kansas City’s best pizza has Minsky’s in the mood to celebrate – and what better way to celebrate than to give back to four amazing, local charities that help enrich so many lives in our community? In honor of our past 40 years and the commitment to community service by these four charities, Minsky’s is proud to launch our month-long, not-for-profit fundraiser, aptly named Minsky’s “4 for 40”.
Minsky’s has teamed up to raise donations for the following four, very special, local not-for-profits:
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City
- Turn the Page KC
- KC Pet Project
- The Alex Smith Foundation
How “4 for 40” Works:
Starting Friday, April 29th through Tuesday, May 31st, Minsky’s Pizza will donate 15% of customers’ in-store and online orders to the individual customer’s not-for-profit of choice from the four organizations listed above. The 15% donation is activated one of two ways:
- The customer presents a printed out “4 for 40” coupon in-store (available below).
- Ordering online at Minskys.com. The customer may enter their favorite not-for-profit’s donation code(available below).
As an added bonus, the not-for-profit that receives the most donations during the “4 for 40” program will receive equal matching funds from Minsky’s – meaning double the donation!
And, the giving doesn’t stop there! As a special thank you to the customers who help support this worthy cause, Minsky’s will take 5% off all online and in-store orders for customers who use the “4 for 40” coupon or online ordering code!

“Turn the Page KC instigates Kansas City’s most positive future through 3rd grade reading proficiency.”
The mission of Turn the Page KC is to mobilize the community to achieve reading proficiency at grade level or above for all third graders in Kansas City, Missouri. Turn the Page KC was founded by Mayor Sly James in 2011 as an initiative to raise the reading proficiency of third graders, which at the time was only 33%. Volunteer and community organizations began to rally around this mission. In 2015, test scores showed that 3rd grade reading proficiency in Kansas City is now at 49% and appears to be on the rise. In 2014, Turn the Page KC received its tax exempt status from the federal government and hired Mike English to serve as Executive Director.

“The Alex Smith Foundation provides foster teens with the with tools and resources needed to transition to successful adulthood by developing and promoting Education, Advocacy, Mentoring, Housing, Internship and Job programs.”
The Alex Smith Foundation is looking forward to a new chapter in the Kansas City Community and partnering with Cornerstones of Care. Cornerstones of Care runs many programs serving foster youth. Their YES! (Youth Educational Success) Program offers similar support for former foster youths in pursuit of higher education. The 2009 Missouri Blue Ribbon Task Force on Foster Youth Aging Out reported that foster youths face the following barriers to attending college: lack of financial resources, lack of emotional support from caring adults, and lack of social opportunity. The YES! Program was developed to address these barriers and increase the number of foster youths who attend and graduate from college.
