Honoring the Past, Preserving the Future

Honoring the memory of a loved one through gifts to the University of Kansas provides family, friends and others a tangible way to connect a life well lived with a future full of hope. Gifts made today ensure future generations of Jayhawks can learn — and later thrive — because they chose to study at KU. We at KU Endowment are grateful for the families and friends who have chosen to direct memorial gifts to the university.


Memorial gifts to KU Endowment are an excellent way to honor a loved one. If you are interested in directing donations to KU Endowment, please use the following sample language to guide your donors:

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to KU Endowment for the benefit of KU. Please make checks payable to “KU Endowment” and send them to the following address:

KU Endowment Memorials
P.O. Box 928
Lawrence, KS 66044
To give online, visit kuendowment.org/memorials

To aid in matching gifts to the correct individual, please make the following notation in the check’s Memo Line:

In Memory of [Full Name of the Deceased]

All gifts will be acknowledged by KU Endowment. Donors will receive a receipt and the family (or their designee) will receive a card or letter with a list of all donors should they wish to personally acknowledge each gift.
