Board Member, Marion and Henry Bloch Foundation
Elizabeth Bloch Uhlmann, daughter of Henry Wollman Bloch, founder of H&R Block, is a native of Kansas City, Missouri. She attended University of Texas and graduated University of Missouri at Kansas City. Liz, one of the four children of Marion and Henry Bloch, has been very active in the volunteer community in Kansas City, particularly with children’s causes and education.
While Liz was not directly involved with the family business, H&R Bloch, she grew up hearing about the company and was present at numerous events and functions throughout the past 40 years. Liz currently is a member of the Marion and Henry Bloch Family Foundation Board which was designed to support causes personally important to her parents, Henry and the late Marion Bloch, as well as to improving the lives of Kansas City’s underserved, low income individuals.
Liz is also a member of the board of trustees of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and is a former board or committee member of The Children’s Place, Stop Violence Coalition, Hear My Voice, The Children’s Spot, and the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired. Liz and her husband, Paul Uhlmann III (brother of Caro Uhlmann Rock, Publisher of Family Business Magazine), have three grown children, and three grandchildren, all of whom live in Kansas City.
