Celebrate K-State and join the 1863 Circle!

What is the 1863 Circle?

We invite you to join the 5,000+ families around the world who set an example as leaders in annual giving at K-State.

The 1863 Circle is Kansas State University’s annual giving recognition society showcasing the generosity of alumni and friends with giving of $1,000 or more annually. As an 1863 Circle member you set an example and inspire other K-Staters to make a difference for the university at a leadership annual giving level each year. Best of all, you decide how your gift makes a difference, and you don't have to give to just one area.

You automatically become a member of the 1863 Circle each year that your giving total equals $1,000 or more, regardless of where you decide to direct it. You can make a single gift of $1,000 or several gifts throughout the year to reach $1,000 in giving. Giving totals are counted based on the fiscal year (July 1–June 30).

Join other loyal K-Staters by showing your support for academics, athletics, student life and other areas you care about. Your gift counts wherever you care most.

K-State is excited to thank its 5,000+ donors reaching the 1863 Circle and also recognizes their support in publications such as the K-Stater, Good for K-State, college publications, departmental newsletters and the 1863 Circle Honor Roll.
