Hays Kan.- Jana’s Campaign Inc. announces that it has received a $25,000 recognition grant from the Kansas Health Foundation of Wichita. Resources will be used to establish the annual Heartland Campus Safety Summit for the purpose of assisting colleges and universities in their efforts to reduce dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
“We are excited that the Kansas Health Foundation has invested in us and the mission of reducing gender-based violence on the campuses of Kansas colleges and universities”, says Curt Brungardt, Jana’s Campaign president. The Heartland Summit will bring national experts to the region and encourage area college personnel to share best practices on their work to reduce gender violence.
Jana’s Campaign Inc. of Hays, Kansas, is a national anti-violence education and prevention organization developed after the death of KU law student, Jana Mackey, in 2008.
Through its recognition grant program, the Kansas Health Foundation provides grant dollars to organizations and agencies who share their mission of improving the health of all Kansans. This spring, the Kansas Health Foundation provided more than $830,000 to help organizations implement 50 different projects designed to improve the health and wellness of Kansans.
