LAWRENCE — As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the Jayhawk community, many people are wondering what they can do to help. In response, KU Endowment is establishing a COVID-19 Emergency Relief fund.
"From the student senate to alumni to faculty and staff, we've heard from many who want to help," said Dale Seuferling, KU Endowment president. "The fact that people are thinking about how they can help others in their time of need assures me that we will get through this. I'm encouraged and inspired."
Anyone can give to the fund by visiting https://www.kuendowment.org/Your-Gift/COVID-19-Relief-Fund. As with all donations to KU Endowment, 100% of funds raised will go to support KU. KU Endowment will work closely with Chancellor Douglas A. Girod and others to determine areas of greatest need that the fund will support.
KU Endowment is the independent, nonprofit organization serving as the official fundraising and fund-management organization for KU. Founded in 1891, KU Endowment was the first foundation of its kind at a U.S. public university.
