Strengthening KU

KU Endowment provided an all-time record $191 million in institutional support, an increase over the previous year’s total of $185.3 million, which was a record at the time. This spending is derived from expendable gifts and the income from endowed funds.


Perpetual support

We aim to provide a stable stream of support for the university from one generation to the next. In keeping with this perspective, we invest endowed and other long-term funds in our Long-term Investment Program, a professionally managed diversified portfolio.

The total market value of long-term investments was $1.543 billion as of June 30, 2018.
