Women Philanthropists for KU

WP4KU Events


The Women Philanthropists for KU are focused on engaging and educating women and the community about the University of Kansas. We encourage women to support KU through their philanthropy and leadership, and to explore ways to address the interests of women donors.

Who We Are

Women Philanthropists for KU was formed in 2004 by a group of visionary women and continues today with an advisory board composed of leaders of diverse ages, backgrounds, interests and geographic locations. An internal steering committee of KU Endowment staff members provides assistance to the advisory board. We host events designed to highlight important programs and initiatives to connect people with areas of excellence at the University of Kansas.

KU Women for KU Women Fund

Women Philanthropists for KU is cultivating the next generation of women through the KU Women for KU Women Fund, which provides grants for deserving KU seniors and graduate students who face financial obstacles to achieving their educational and professional goals. The fund is administered through The Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity.
