Donor pledges $25 million to University of Kansas

University of Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas says one of its graduates has pledged a $25 million donation for scholarships and other purposes.

Officials announced the commitment Thursday in a news release that also said the donor has asked to remain anonymous.

The university says the donor appreciated the education he received as well as the scholarship support that helped him attend KU. He said he had been thinking for years about helping KU in his estate plans.

Eighty percent of the $25 million gift will benefit the KU Alumni Association’s outreach programs. The rest will be divided equally between support for alumni scholarships and the Greater KU Fund, which supports priority needs.
