Sustainers

Like our Founders, the support of our Sustainers is an important part of the Foundation’s ability to continue serving the community. While the Founders provided a “Foundation” to get us started, the Sustainer gifts will continue to advance our mission to serve the needs of today and tomorrow. All Sustainer gifts will also receive a $2,500 match from the Kansas Health Foundation towards our Smoky Hills Healthy Living Fund and our Smoky Hills Administrative Fund through the end of 2016.

If you are interested in becoming a Sustainer, please call the Foundation at 785-531-0470 or fill out a Sustainer pledge card.
