Through crowdsourcing and message research, the top talking points regarding healthy foods and physical activity have been gathered within this guide. Originally designed for use by participants in the KHF Healthy Communities Initiative, it can be used by any individual or group working on these topics.
The best public health strategies include disease prevention and protection, as well as health promotion and healthy public policy. The purpose of this guidebook is to support the Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) grantees with media and marketing strategies to influence local health policy and behavioral change in their communities and across the state.
In our annual tribute to recipients of KHF Recognition Grants, this report highlights grantees doing innovative and impactful work in communities throughout our state.
To coincide with the public unveiling of the new Kansas Leadership Center and Kansas Health Foundation Conference Center, the Leadership for a Healthy Kansas report looks back at the origins of the Foundation’s funding for leadership development initiatives.
To highlight a sampling of the grantees who received funding in 2012, this report is designed to give you an all-access pass, via a guidebook tour, to eight different programs making a difference and changing lives.
Since its inception in 1995, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) has provided policymakers in Kansas with high-quality, objective research and data to help inform important policy decisions throughout Kansas.
In 2011, more than 100 outstanding organizations, school districts and communities received Recognition Grants.
Across the state, dedicated individuals, organizations and communities are working to create better futures for Kansas children, fill gaps in services and care, and reach out to diverse populations to share information about health and wellness. To learn more about these remarkable grantees, we invite you to read this year’s Recognition Grant report.
Growing community philanthropy is a focus area for the Kansas Health Foundation, and the first decade of our GROW program to build and strengthen community foundations across the state was amazingly successful.
The Kansas Community Leadership Initiative (KCLI) began in 1999 with the belief that you can change communities for the better by changing the people in them one by one.
While much of the Foundation’s grant making is done in a proactive, strategic manner, the Recognition Grants program gives us an opportunity to work directly with many grassroots organizations doing innovative work to help people throughout Kansas.
Every month, our electronic newsletter, Health Happenings, features a story about a focus area, grant, partnership or program involving the Foundation.
