The Power of Endowed Funds

Perpetual support. It’s a fundraising term that may be hard to grasp. But it’s the best way to explain the power of an endowed fund. It means these funds will benefit the University of Kansas as long as it exists. 

When you create an endowed fund to benefit KU, you enter into a partnership with KU Endowment intended to last in perpetuity. The goal is to ensure that your gift will provide consistent support every year while protecting its value for generations. You decide how to name your fund — in your name, in honor of a loved one, or after your favorite professor, for example. Whatever name you choose will be known at KU forever, creating a lasting legacy.
