How will my donation be used?

Your support will allow us to do more of the work you already rely on:
– policy research and polling on Medicare, Medicaid, the uninsured, women’s health, health costs, private insurance, the ACA, health care disparities and equity, HIV/AIDS and global health policy;
– in-depth health policy news coverage provided by our news service, KHN;

KFF has an endowment. Why does it need donations?

Our work, reach and impact are dependent upon you! While we have an endowment, over 30% of KFF”s annual funding comes for our donor community. The prominent national role we play today, or our ability to expand our activities into emerging and vital issues like rural health care, access to and delivery of mental health care, the impact of digital technology on patients, and the role racial equity plays in our health system would not be possible without the generous support of our donors.
