Strengthening KU

Since KU Endowment’s founding in 1891, we have been a vital partner to the University of Kansas and have provided $2.7 billion in support, thanks to donor philanthropy. In fiscal 2019, we provided $173.6 million to the university. This spending is derived from expendable gifts and the income from endowed funds.

Perpetual Support

We strive to provide dependable support that the university can count on now and far into the future. To maintain this consistency, we invest endowed and other enduring funds in our Long-term Investment Program, a professionally managed diversified portfolio.
