The Impact Project Video
Major Grants & Sponsors
This national fundraising campaign seeks to raise $500,000 over the next eighteen months to take our work to the next level. Jana’s Campaign is a Kansas-based, national education and violence prevention organization with the mission of reducing gender and relationship violence. Over our six year history, our programming impact has been felt throughout Kansas and across the United States.
The IMPACT project fundraising campaign is designed to increase both the scale and scope of our work and to create even greater impact. The IMPACT project will allow us to improve and expand our gender violence prevention efforts in middle and high schools, colleges and universities, as well as with our community-wide programming activities.
In 2011 we launched our first major fundraising campaign. In eight short months we raised over $125,000, which provided us with the necessary foundation to jump-start our organization. Since that time, hundreds of our friends have continued to financially support us, which has allowed us to grow and expand our impact.
We are making a difference. With your help we can do even more. Please support the IMPACT project and help us reach our goal. All proceeds will directly support our education and violence prevention work.
Our Goal: $500,000

Mia Lang is a ten-year-old fourth grader at Holy Family Elementary School in Hays, Kansas. Last year for her birthday, she asked her family and friends not to buy her gifts, but rather to donate to Jana’s Campaign. Her efforts and passion for the cause raised $1,100. Since that time, Mia continues to fundraise and volunteer for Jana’s Campaign.
Curt Brungardt is the Voss Professor of Leadership Studies at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas and is a co-founder of Jana’s Campaign. The past five years, Curt has served as president of the Board of Directors of Jana’s Campaign before stepping down in August 2015.
