WICHITA, Kan. – Jeffry L. Jack will complete his Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) Board of Directors service June 30. Jack has served for nine years on the KHF Board, including as chair, vice chair and serving on the finance and governance committees.

During his service, Jack approved 1,480 grants totaling more than $129 million to organizations across Kansas.

“We are incredibly grateful for Jeff Jack’s leadership and service over the years,” said Junetta Everett, vice chair of the KHF Board of Directors. “Through his leadership, Jeff has helped the Foundation remain steadfast in its commitment to health and racial equity; led approval of innovative grants; and pushed for policy that makes strides toward better health outcomes across the state.”

In honor of his service, the Foundation will provide a total of $25,000 to the following organizations:

  • $20,000 to the Douglas County Community Foundation for a fund designed to provide scholarships to children who have been “littles” in the Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
  • $5,000 to the Lawrence Humane Society for general support.

“I have greatly valued my time at the Kansas Health Foundation and being part of a team that finds innovative ways to impact the health of all Kansans,” Jack said. “During my tenure, my understanding of the importance of addressing health equity issues most impacting Kansans solidified, and I am excited to see all the Foundation accomplishes in the future through its continued commitment to health equity. I am also deeply honored to designate grants to these organizations.”
