We had so much fun last year, we’re doing it again! On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, alumni and friends from all over the world will come together to support the University of Kansas during our 24-hour giving campaign, ONE DAY. ONE KU. Contributions made between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. CST will count toward ONE DAY. ONE KU. totals. Please take a moment to browse the site to learn about the different opportunities and consider supporting the programs and priorities most meaningful to you.
February 20, 1863 is a significant date in KU history – a date that tells a powerful story about how one person can make a big difference. KU traces its very beginnings to that date, when a bill that passed the state House of Representatives by just one vote, became law. If the KU we are today could grow out of that one vote, imagine what could happen when thousands of Jayhawks come together on one day! That’s what ONE DAY. ONE KU. is all about – bringing alumni and friends together in support of the University of Kansas.
Last year, during the inaugural ONE DAY. ONE KU. event, donors gave 1,898 gifts totaling $734,621. It was the largest number of gifts ever received for KU in a single day. The gifts supported more than 225 areas across all five campuses and created more opportunities for students, faculty and programs. We're excited to continue the momentum and make this year's event even more successful.
