Help Us Create an Endowment Fund

Mini College needs a stable financial future if it’s to continue bringing this outstanding event to you and other curious adults. Numerous Mini College supporters have asked how they could contribute to that future. In recent years, we’ve discussed creating an endowment fund to keep KU Mini College going. Now, after working with KU Endowment and the Lifelong & Professional Education office, we’re ready to set up such a fund and to accept your contributions.

The University requires a minimum of $5,000 to establish a KU Endowment fund. If each of the attendees at the 2021 virtual Mini College contributed $80, we would reach that goal. If each of us dug deeper and contributed $500, we would reach $25,000 and have a fully funded KU Endowment fund. Then donations in future years could keep it growing.

Can you help? Whether you can contribute $5 or $5,000, your contribution will make a difference. Three ways you can contribute:

1. Send a personal check¬†made out to KU Endowment with “Mini College Fund” in the memo line to:

KU Endowment
Attn: Austin Ice
P.O. Box 928
Lawrence, KS 66044

2. Make an online payment here. Enter “KU Mini College Fund” in the Special Instructions field about halfway down the webpage. Please note there is a 2.35% transaction fee.

3. Make a monthly contribution.  Contact Austin directly at for easy set-up.

Thank you for your support, financial or otherwise, to Mini College!
