Issues related to COVID-19 have drastically altered everyday life across our nation and state. In these uncertain times, the Kansas Health Foundation is working to provide resources to individuals, families, organizations and communities. As information becomes available, we’re currently dividing these resources into four main categories: Grantee Information, Nonprofit Resources, Family Resources and Taking Action.

We envision a culture in which every Kansan can make healthy choices where they live, work and play. We invest in ideas for healthier people and stronger communities. With Kansas data, we know that health outcomes are greatly affected by race, income, education level and geographic areas. This affects both individuals and families – as children from lower-income, racial/ethnic minority groups and certain zip codes experience lower health outcomes and educational challenges.
To realize its vision and mission, KHF invests in the following key program areas:
It is important for all Kansans to have access to health care, for help when they are sick, and to prevent or reduce the severity of disease and illness.Read More
KHF invests in programs and supports policy efforts that promote healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco use prevention.Read More
KHF recognizes individuals’ health and well-being are also influenced by where and how they live. And stronger communities also help improve the health of Kansans.Read More
