Our Work

We envision a culture in which every Kansan can make healthy choices where they live, work, and play. To realize its vision and fulfill its mission, KHF will invest in multiple key program areas:

Access To Care

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. In Kansas today, however, one in six adults age 18 to 64 lack health care coverage.

Healthy Behaviors

Tobacco use and obesity remain the leading causes of preventable death and illness in Kansas.

Civic And Community Engagement

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.

Educational Attainment

Research shows that individuals with more education live longer, healthier lives than those with less education.

Core Support

Core support grants are meant to support organizations in Kansas whose overall work and mission align closely with that of KHF. Ensuring these grantees have the appropriate capacity and resources to make an impact in the state represents a key grantmaking strategy.
