We are called to help Kansans thrive with healthy minds, bodies, and spirits

The United Methodist Health Ministry Fund sparks conversation and action to improve the health and wholeness of Kansans—especially those in rural and under-served communities. Through funding programs and ideas, providing hands-on expertise, and convening influencers, we advance innovative solutions to improve Kansans’ health for generations to come. We steward a $60 million endowment, which has provided more than $75 million in grants and program support since our inception in 1986.

2019-2022 Strategic Plan
