The KSU Annual Fund is the annual giving program for Kentucky State University alumni and friends. It provides the cornerstone for KSU’s success. We operate on a fiscal year which runs July 1st through June 30th.
Your annual support of the KSU Annual Fund helps keep the university affordable for students, provides opportunities for learning and discovery, and ensures KSU’s progress.
Your annual participation is key! Tax-deductible gifts to the KSU Annual Fund provide a steady source of support for academic programs and give the university the flexibility to meet emerging needs and challenges.
And annual support from alumni helps improve KSU’s national rankings and reputation. Demonstrate your vote of confidence and loyalty by giving to the KSU Annual Fund. Together, our gifts make a difference.
The mission of the KSU Annual Fund is to build alumni participation through annual gifts to the university. The KSU Annual Fund also strives to offer alumni, students and friends meaningful opportunities to remain involved in the life of the university.
Areas of Support
Supporting the university’s scholarship initiatives is the most direct way alumni and friends of the university can make a difference in the lives of our students. Scholarships expand opportunities for undergraduate students by allowing the university to recognize and reward outstanding academic achievement and by helping to open KSU’s doors to students who would otherwise not be able to afford college.
University Fund (Unrestricted)
Kentucky State University relies on an annual base of unrestricted funds to support a wide variety of university programs, special projects, new research initiatives, and individual students. The University Fund is the foundation of this annual support, giving the university the agility to respond immediately to areas of greatest need.
Academic Areas (Schools and Colleges)
By choosing to invest in a specific academic unit, you are casting your vote of confidence in that instructional program. Moreover, you are supplying the necessary support to enhance established initiatives but also provide resources to create others. Either way, you are enriching the lives of the students by expanding their opportunities.
KSU is dedicated to creating a comprehensive educational experience for our students. We provide opportunities that complement the academic curricula and help students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including housing, dining, recreation, student organizations, health care, counseling, and career development.
