Mirror receives Kansas Health Foundation grant
The Kansas Health Foundation recently named Mirror among the recipients for the 2020 Impact and Capacity Grants (ICG) Initiative. The ICG Initiative provides one-year grants of up to $25,000 for nonprofits mission-aligned with KHF, focused on COVID-19 response and recovery. There were 91 grants awarded to nonprofit, faith-based and government organizations, totaling more than $2 million.
“The KHF board embraced the opportunity to repurpose these funds to quickly react to the impact COVID-19 is having on our state,” said Matt Allen, chair of the KHF Board of Directors. “These funds will assist organizations as they respond to Kansans in need and provide core operations support to sustain their organizations during these uniquely difficult financial times.”
Prompted by the urgent need to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, KHF advanced the application launch date, and due to overwhelming response, closed the initiative within two weeks. KHF fielded 477 funding proposals from organizations across the state.
“This grant will allow Mirror to perform professional deep cleaning of our four residential treatment centers at this stage in the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re grateful to KHF for their commitment to help keep Kansans safe and healthy, including Mirror’s own clients and staff.”
To date, KHF has authorized more than $16.3 million to support emergency COVID-19 response and recovery efforts across Kansas.
