Kansas Health Foundation
Located in Wichita, Kansas, the Kansas Health Foundation (www.kansashealth.org) is a philanthropy dedicated to improving the health of all Kansans. KHF defines health in broad terms, believing health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. KHF's assets total over $500 million and approximately $20 million in grants is paid out annually. Using a strategic grant-making approach, KHF seeks opportunities to invest its resources in people and projects that meet its mission and that create long-term sustainable health improvements. To accomplish its mission, KHF's Board of Directors approved the following focus areas: Healthy Living (physical activity, healthy eating, tobacco prevention), Public Health (workforce development, surveillance), Community Philanthropy, Health Data and Information and Civic Leadership.
