Annual Support

"Your donation each year strengthens our strong roots as an 1890 land-grant university to our 21st century innovation."

The support of alumni and community friends provides a path for student success through cultivation of lifelong learners, productive and engaged citizens and future employees.

Tuition and state appropriations are not sufficient to educate each student, therefore, we rely on philanthropic support to make a difference. Please consider making a contribution of any amount to our annual fund priorities.

Annual Fund Priorities

  • Greatest Need
  • Student Scholarships
  • Academic Programs
  • Technology & Resources
  • Young Alumni Club
  • Band, KJLU, Special Programs
