Chancellors Club

The Chancellors Club is a community of KU alumni and friends who care deeply about this university and who have made a commitment to invest in its greatest needs. The club recognizes both donors of major gifts designated for specific purposes on any of KU’s campuses and annual donors to the Greater KU Fund, which is flexible and serves many purposes to benefit the entire university.

You will be recognized as a member of this premier giving society through a minimum $1,000 annual gift to the Greater KU Fund. You can even divide your gift into monthly installments of less than $100. 

We extend a personal invitation to you to join this circle of friends who make a huge impact on KU’s present and future.

If you are on the KU faculty or staff or are employed by one of the university’s affiliates, you can use payroll deduction to make your gift to the Greater KU Fund.

If you are not a KU employee, you may be able to increase your contribution through employer matching gift programs. Many companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees, board members or retirees. Call KU Endowment’s Matching Gift Help Line at 800-661-5874 to learn if your employer has a matching gift program.

Benefits of membership
Chancellors Club members are invited to visit with the KU chancellor and other alumni and friends at events held across the nation each year. You also will be invited to the club’s Annual Celebration, held in the fall in Lawrence.

At these events, you will hear firsthand about the latest developments at KU and about the university’s plans. More importantly, you will have the satisfaction of investing regularly in KU. What better way to be the difference for KU?

Chancellors Club Scholars 
Each year, the Chancellors Club honors 16 National Merit finalists with renewable scholarships. Along with the scholars, professors are honored each year through professorships and awards for teaching and research.
