At the Kansas Health Foundation, all our work centers on our mission: to improve the health of all Kansans


At the Kansas Health Foundation, all of our work centers on our mission: To improve the health of all Kansans.

To understand our Foundation’s mission, it’s helpful to know how we define health. We join with the World Health Organization in believing that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.


In 2015, KHF adopted a new vision statement: The Kansas Health Foundation envisions a culture in which every Kansan can make healthy choices where they live, work and play.

Work across Kansas

The Kansas Health Foundation could never meet this mission without a broad network of effective partnerships across the state. We work closely with other health foundations, nonprofit groups, community foundations, state agencies, universities, hospitals, communities and advisory groups to develop programs and find answers to complex health issues. And we will continue to form and strengthen partnerships with more Kansas organizations and communities.

Thanks to the hard work of our grantees and the dedication of our Board of Directors and staff, much progress has already been made toward our mission of improving the health of our state. More challenges and hard work lie ahead, but we are committed to helping Kansans lead healthier lives for many generations to come.

The Kansas Health Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
