Donor generosity

Contributions for the benefit of the University of Kansas and The University of Kansas Health System totaled $257.4 million, an increase from the $154.8 million given in fiscal 2017. This the second largest total in KU Endowment history.

We held our first day of giving on Feb. 20, titled One Day. One KU. In just 24 hours, Jayhawks came together to support 225 different areas at KU, giving $734,621 for programs and initiatives across all campuses. The effort recorded an all-time high number of gifts in one day, 1,898.
