Alumni, friends, parents, faculty, students and corporate partners of Kansas State University made philanthropic gifts, pledges and future commitments totaling $152 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2013. This figure sets a new record in total gift activity in the 69-year history of the KSU Foundation, surpassing the previous record of $111 million in fiscal year 2012.
Total gift activity includes outright gifts of cash or securities, pledges that will come to the university within a five-year-period, and deferred gift commitments that will be realized by the university at some point in the future.
“The generosity of K-State’s alumni and friends is deeply appreciated,” said Curt Frasier, Beloit, Kan., chairman of the KSU Foundation Board of Directors. “This achievement is a testament to the 57,300 individuals who contributed this year, which is up from 51,400 individuals last year.”
