KHF defines health broadly, and as such, provides funding in many different areas in order to achieve our mission. However, our organization does have a list of grant exclusions, or projects for which our grant funds may not be used. These include any of the following activities:


  • Medical research
  • Contributions to capital campaigns
  • Operating deficits or retirement of debt
  • Endowment programs not initiated by KHF
  • Activities supporting political candidates or voter registration drives, as defined in IRC section 4945(d)(1)
  • Vehicles, such as vans or buses
  • Medical equipment
  • Construction projects or real estate acquisitions (Both KHF and match funding from other foundations or organizations may be used for community enhancement projects.)
  • Direct mental health services
  • Direct medical services
  • Grants to individuals
  • Annual fund drives
  • Fundraising events
