$90.9 Million Contributed to K-State Last Year

MANHATTAN, KS--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  Alumni, friends and corporate partners of Kansas State University contributed $90.9 million to K-State through the KSU Foundation during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2010. This is the fourth-highest total in the 65-year history of the foundation.

"K-State's alumni and friends are unmatched in their dedication and generosity," said Lee Harris, Leawood, Kan., chairman of the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees. "We want the 43,327 alumni and friends who contributed this year to know that their generosity is deeply appreciated. We would especially like to thank the 5,529 people who made gifts to K-State for the first time in this past fiscal year."

Of the $90.9 million total received during the fiscal year, $61.9 million was received in cash, real estate or appreciated securities, and $29 million was committed through pledges and deferred gifts, which will come to the university at a later date.

"There is no question that this level of support by the K-State family will assist Kansas State University in our quest to be recognized among the top 50 public research universities," said Kirk Schulz, president of Kansas State University.

"Just one-quarter of the university's operating budget now comes from the state," Schulz said. "The remainder of the operating budget comes from three sources: tuition, grants and contracts, and private philanthropic support given through the KSU Foundation. The collaborative efforts of the donors, the university staff and the foundation staff make a big difference in support for students, faculty, facilities and technology. Charitable gifts provide a margin of excellence at K-State."

Philanthropic contributions to K-State are coordinated by the Kansas State University Foundation. The foundation staff works with university partners to build lifelong relationships with alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students through involvement and investment in the university.
