Sending the Signal

Playing sports has a profound impact on the lives of kids. An impact that ripples out into our community. That’s why Union Broadcasting created ShareWaves. We’re a brand-new nonprofit in Kansas City seeking a 501(c)(3) status. We are dedicated to helping all kids in our community experience the long list of life-enriching benefits that come from playing sports.

Union Broadcasting is donating radio air-time and access to their entire digital/social media platforms. In addition, they will support ShareWaves with their production expertise and will broadcast PSAs, create podcasts for NPOs, and drive support for special programing and events that impact the lives of young people in our community. This new foundation marks the beginning of a plan to re-purpose Union Broadcasting's strong community presence to help bring forward game-changing solutions that positively impact the youth of our city. We will work closely with like-minded youth-sports organizations and community stakeholders to assist in enhancing young lives.

Union Broadcasting is a Kansas City based sports-media company that operates Sports Radio 810 WHB, America’s largest all-sports radio station. They are the official broadcast partner of the Kansas City Chiefs and Sporting Kansas City as well as the official broadcast home of the Kansas Jayhawks.

Our Game plan

ShareWaves was created as a single cause foundation. We will use our exclusive access to the airwaves of Union Broadcasting to support meaningful causes. Over the last 20 years, Union Broadcasting has built a strong community presence as they have help support thousands of charities and causes. Launching ShareWaves provides Union with a new way to increase our support and deliver strategic solutions that will transform young lives. Here is our initial launch priorities as we begin to build-out our new foundation.

  1. Leverage our current outreach and charitable activity.

  2. Recruit our core team of supporters.

  3. Work with Union and 810WHB to create waves of support for youth-related causes.

  4. Create and distribute digital-content to amplify cause-related messaging.

  5. Promote participation in sports to transform young lives.
