Kansas News Service Funding
The Kansas News Service launched in 2017 with a start-up grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. That support, by design, has expired. Our partners rely largely on their listeners for financial help, and those contributions to public radio stations help pay the salaries of KNS reporters. We also depend heavily on grant funding from the Kansas Grantmakers in Health, which represent the six health care conversion foundations in Kansas: the Kansas Health Foundation, the REACH Healthcare Foundation, the Health Forward Foundation, the Sunflower Foundation, the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund, and the Wyandotte Health Foundation.
