Program – K21 Foundation Update – Rich Haddad, K21 Health Foundation is a private foundation that focuses on improving health and wellness for the residents of Kosciusko County. The original assets of the foundation came from the non-profit hospital established in 1967, and the sale of this hospital did not end the intent of the original donors. We’re continually working toward improved wellness in our community.

K-21 has committed $1,800,000 to earmark $200,000 for each of the smaller towns in Kosciusko County.

Overall funding guidelines are as follows:

  • Supporting non-profit organizations that provide direct health services to people in need.
  • Funding efforts that advance prevention and minimize the need for health services.
  • Investing in the development and implementation of solutions that work toward healthy lifestyles and decisions.
  • Participating in consistent assessment and evaluation of existing health needs in our community.
