About Us

K21 Health Foundation is a private foundation that focuses on opportunities to improve health and wellness for the citizens of Kosciusko County. This focus has its roots from the origin of the assets of the foundation being from the non-profit hospital that was established in 1967. The sale of this hospital did not end the intent of the original donors. This focus is evidenced in the foundation's mission statement:

K21 Health Foundation exists for the benefit of Kosciusko County citizens to ensure health care services are provided, and to advance prevention and healthy living.

This will be accomplished by identifying health needs in our community, and maintaining an endowment so funding is available, through investments and grants, for those needs.

Although the foundation considers any grant opportunities that clearly addresses health and wellness issues for our community, our priorities for funding consideration focus on the following:

  1. Supporting non-profit organizations providing direct health services to people in need.

  2. Funding organizations that are making advances or providing services in prevention improvements to minimize the need for health services.

  3. Supporting those who are developing and implementing solutions toward providing opportunities to pursue healthy lifestyles and decisions.

  4. A commitment to regular, consistent assessment and participation in the discovery of existing health needs of our community.

We are excited about the clear and critical role K21 Health Foundation can have for our community's future!
