WICHITA, KAN. – Through its fall 2015 cycle of Recognition Grants, the Kansas Health Foundation has provided more than $685,000 in grants to help organizations across the state accomplish 36 projects that intend to improve the health and wellness of Kansans.
Recognition Grants expand KHF’s support to a broad range of health-related organizations throughout the state and are targeted toward organizations and agencies proposing meaningful and charitable projects that fit within the Foundation’s mission of improving the health of all Kansans.
Using a competitive application process, KHF allocates up to $2 million every year for the Recognition Grants program. Application deadlines for the two cycles are March 15 and September 15 each year. Any tax-exempt, nonprofit organization using the money for charitable purposes and proposing a project meeting KHF’s mission to improve the health of all Kansans is eligible. In addition to supporting projects, KHF also seeks to support initiatives that focus on promoting policy, systems and environmental transformations that support health.

The Kansas Health Foundation is based in Wichita, but statewide in its focus. With a mission to improve the health of all Kansans, KHF envisions a culture in which every Kansan can make healthy choices where they live, work and play. To achieve this, KHF focuses its work in four impact areas: access to affordable health care, healthy behaviors, civic and community engagement and educational attainment. During its history, KHF has provided more than $500 million in grants to Kansas communities and organizations, and looks forward to working toward its mission and vision for many years to come.
