KU Endowment provides record $115.1 million to KU
“It is a privilege to be able to provide record-setting support for KU,” said Dale Seuferling, president of KU Endowment. “The real effect of this support is the impact it has on people’s lives, particularly KU’s students and faculty. This is possible thanks to our donors, who understand that an investment in KU is an investment in the future of all the communities served by this great university.”
The $115.1 million represents the amount of direct financial support provided by KU Endowment to the university’s four campuses and KU Hospital. The support benefits programs, research, students, faculty and facilities.
The market value of endowed funds increased by 13.8 percent, ending the fiscal year at $1.05 billion. KU Endowment invests its endowed funds in a diversified portfolio. The long-term investment pool is made up of more than 3,200 individual endowed funds established by donors.
