President's Welcome Message

Dale SeuferlingIt’s my privilege to serve as the president of KU Endowment — a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to partner with donors in providing philanthropic support to build a greater KU. At a time when state financing covers about 20 percent of KU’s total operating expenses for all campuses, private gifts are increasingly crucial to virtually all activities of the university.

Founded in 1891, KU Endowment was the first such foundation serving a public university in the United States.

I hope you’ll take time to explore We’ve tried to arrange the website so you can find information quickly and easily.

Thank you for your interest in KU and in KU Endowment.
