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.
Below, please view a list of this cycle’s grant recipients. For more information on all these grants, please visit www.kansashealth.org.
