A Legacy of Leadership, Commitment
In addition to building a successful business, Henry was committed to building stronger communities.
Henry and his wife, Marion, were life-long residents of Kansas City. They had four children, 12 grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren together.
I’ve always wanted to do something different, something more than just a job, something to contribute to society.
Henry was widely known as a businessman, civic leader and philanthropist who worked to improve the quality of life in his hometown of Kansas City. After his retirement from H&R Block, Mr. Bloch has worked daily on his many philanthropic endeavors in Kansas City, including the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Saint Luke’s Hospital and The H & R Block Foundation.
In 2011, Henry and his wife, Marion, established the Marion and Henry Bloch Family Foundation to continue their philanthropic legacy. The Foundation builds on their vision and values to improve the quality of life in Greater Kansas City through thoughtful, innovative and responsible philanthropy.
