Support from foundations and corporations is vital to the ability of the University of Kansas to accomplish its mission. Although KU is a state institution, the state provides only about 22 percent of its funding.
A gift to KU is an investment in an institution that has earned accolades
for the quality of its education, service and research.
KU is the only university in the state to hold membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), a select group of 61 public and private research universities that represents excellence in graduate and professional education and the highest achievements in research internationally.
Corporations and foundations can strengthen the university in many ways, including:
- Helping KU continue to educate and graduate competent leaders in their fields;
- Assisting KU in achieving designation as a National Cancer Institute comprehensive cancer center;
- Ensuring that KU continues to conduct cutting-edge research, thereby improving the health and well-being of people in our region and society as a whole; and
- Assisting KU in sharing its expertise through outreach programs in Kansas and the surrounding region.
