Nutter Cares

Commitment to community

Helping customers save money on their home loans has been the key to building Nutter’s business, but many have been drawn to Nutter’s efforts to help make Kansas City a better community. Since its founding in 1951, Nutter has quietly donated to scores of charities and civic causes that improve the lives of others. Some of those organizations include the Veterans Community Project, Children’s Mercy Hospital, St. Luke’s Hospital, Harvesters Food Network, the YMCA, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the revitalization of many neighborhoods and parks in the urban core. In addition to giving, Nutter employees have volunteered extensively with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for families in need of low-cost housing.

People and pets – Nutter helps connect

A lifelong animal lover, Nutter has long contributed to Wayside Waifs, a local no-kill shelter that helps find forever homes for pets that are up for adoption. Owning a pet while renting is often prohibited, so Nutter’s no-cost pre-approval letter can help renters become homeowners by helping them understand what they can afford and also show the seller that their offer is backed by confirmed financing. Often times, owning a home is more affordable than renting plus owning helps more people to take care of animals by adopting pets.

Giving back to educational causes lifts children and the community as a whole

Education has been a cornerstone of giving for Nutter Home Loans. The company is a longtime benefactor to many local educational institutions, including the public libraries, Harry S. Truman Presidential Library, the Kansas City and Mid-Continent Library as well as the UMKC Bloch School of Management, Kansas City Art Institute, and many other schools. Nutter’s offices sit on a campus of century-old buildings that they’ve restored and saved, including the educational Nathan Scarritt House. The area, just outside of Westport, is appropriately called Nutterville.

“While our company serves customers in all 50 states, Kansas City is our hometown,” Nutter said. “At the end of the day, we want to make this community a better place to live, raise a family, and enjoy the benefits of owning a home. That’s our commitment and we’re proud of our history of offering competitive rates and doing what is right.”
