Official Charity Response

KC Healthy Kids collaborates with multiple organizations and stakeholders to implement its programs. Most recently, we applied for and received more than $1 million in funding from multiple grants to support our work. While the entire revenue from these grants was reported in prior fiscal years, many of the contracts with our partners were paid out in 2019, which increased our expenses relative to the revenue reported for that fiscal year.
