KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 19, 2023 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - H&R Block was one of 15 businesses recognized as a Champion of Business by the Kansas City Business Journal. This award is presented to metro-area businesses that are setting the gold standard for financial performance, innovation, and community involvement.

“As a global company that proudly calls Kansas City home, we are honored to be recognized as a Champion of Business,” said Jeff Jones, President and CEO of H&R Block. “Every year we help Americans, and they count on us for our digital innovation, and human expertise and care, which is powered by our Connected Culture. Congratulations to our franchisees, tax pros, and associates who work hard every day to deliver our Purpose – to provide help and inspire confidence in our clients and communities everywhere.”

The company has been on a transformation journey, Block Horizons 2025, to improve American’s tax experience, help the spirit of entrepreneurship thrive, and help people be better with money. Every year it supports small business owners with tax preparation, and just over a year ago launched Spruce, a mobile banking app built by H&R Block.1

In addition to its business transformation, H&R Block has committed to serving 1 million volunteer hours by 2025 through its community impact program, Make Every Block Better. This program also focuses on giving back in Greater Kansas City, as demonstrated by the recent $10 million commitment to the South Loop Link project in partnership with the H&R Block Foundation, and Marion and Henry Bloch Family Foundation.
