Kansas Health Foundation

In 2001, over $300,000 was pledged locally to establish the endowed Founders Fund, and that amount was matched with an additional $300,000 by the Kansas Health Foundation (KHF). The Manhattan Community Foundation deeply appreciates the many local donors who helped us meet the KHF match, and we are indebted to the Kansas Health Foundation for making the Founders Fund endowment possible.
 
In 2018 the KHF celebrated the 20th anniversary of its $60 million, multi-phase initiative: Giving Resources to Our World (GROW).  GROW launched in 1999 and was created to help community foundations across Kansas build philanthropic assets, in an effort to keep local Kansas dollars local. This funding allowed community foundations to establish matching challenges and to grow assets, create special health and wellness funds, and become trained in philanthropic leadership. The initiative helped create a self-sufficient foundation field in Kansas, supporting collaboration and idea sharing, as well as preparing foundations for the complexities and challenges awaiting them in the future.
 
The Greater Manhattan Community Foundation has benefitted greatly from the Kansas Health Foundation, and we are so thankful for their support. Since 1999, GMCF has received 19 grants from the KHF totaling $3,337,992!
