Area of Greatest Need


By supporting the Greater KU Fund, you help us advance the university's highest priorities. Your gifts allow us to direct funds where support is needed the most. In keeping with Chancellor Girod’s initiatives, we encourage you to support work in these three areas:

The Student Experience: We continue to enhance the student experience by expanding experiential learning opportunities, such as internships, research initiatives and service learning. The Greater KU Fund supports more than 1,000 Jayhawks participating in study abroad programs, Marching Jayhawks, the KU Honors Program, and Chancellors Club Scholars.

Outreach to Kansas:  Jayhawks are reaching out to strengthen Kansas communities. Faculty members are partnering with rural and urban areas to increase access to new programs and services that support quality of life. Faculty are supported by gifts to the Greater KU Fund by means of professorships and teaching awards.

Research Excellence: Scholars and students are constantly recognized for cutting-edge research. Faculty and students are supported by research awards, thanks to the Greater KU Fund.

Help us build a greater university for current and future Jayhawks by making your gift today. Thank you for your support.
