KU faculty and staff may also make a payroll deduction pledge online by completing the secure, online KU Payroll Deduction Pledge Form.

KU Endowment Association

Since state financing covers only about 17 percent of KU's total operating expenses, the support donors provide is essential to achieving the University's mission and aspirations.  Your philanthropic gifts are a powerful endorsement of the University from its faculty and staff.  With reductions in state support, your continued contributions are essential to helping KU accomplish its goals. 

Please visit KU Endowment » for more information and to download a payroll deduction form. Once completed, return it to the KU Endowment Association » at the address provided at the bottom of the form.
