Jayhawk Faithful

KU Endowment is proud to celebrate the university's most loyal donors through our recognition program, Jayhawk Faithful. Supporters of the University of Kansas become members of the program by making a gift to any area at KU for two or more consecutive years — no matter the size of the gift!
Jayhawk Faithful was established to show appreciation for the more than 16,000 households of Jayhawk alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends who currently support KU, year after year. These dedicated donors provide the university with the consistency and assurance necessary to meet the aspiring goals for university-wide growth and enrichment.

Members of Jayhawk Faithful will receive annual donor appreciation pieces, with special emphasis on milestone consecutive-giving years (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40+). Members achieving various consecutive-giving milestones will receive benefits such as invitations to special events, promotional items and exclusive stewardship pieces.
Maintain your special donor recognition and Jayhawk Faithful membership by giving every academic year (July 1–June 30)!
We are beyond grateful for your unwavering generosity to the University of Kansas!

Donor Spotlight

Jerry and Leonor Skillett

"From the moment I arrived on campus in 1978 to graduation in 1981, the challenges, the learning, the passion and the Rock Chalk Chant proved to be the gateway to an astounding life. For Leonor and I to give back is just a natural extension of planting seeds for future generations, just as Jayhawks before us have done. Give and it will be given to you; yes, yes and yes!"
