Giving to KU Libraries

Make your gift today

Impactful giving

One of the most impactful ways you can support the University of Kansas is by making a gift to KU Libraries. We support all Jayhawk scholars, regardless of discipline or major.  Every student, faculty member and unit at KU turns to the libraries for classroom instruction, one-on-one research assistance, and online databases. Each of our libraries offer the essential resources students need to excel academically. Your support helps us provide the best services and expertise to enrich teaching and learning, and to fuel research at KU and beyond.
