KU Endowment is honored to celebrate Jayhawk Faithful — the most loyal and steadfast supporters of the University of Kansas.
Donors who make a gift to any area at KU for two or more consecutive years are recognized through this dedicated donor group — no matter the size of the gift.
Jayhawk Faithful gifts provide support to:
- The University of Kansas
- The University of Kansas Medical Center
- The University of Kansas Health System
Together, your dollars make many things possible, including research, cultural experiences, real-world learning and community outreach. From students discovering a new species to faculty writing scripts for award-winning films to physician-scientists advancing a cure, the effects are far-reaching and life-changing. The impact of Jayhawk Faithful will be felt for generations to come — one idea, one discovery, one action at a time.
