Your role as a member of the 1863 Circle

As an 1863 Circle member, you have shown tremendous philanthropic leadership that continually advances our university to a position of national prominence. Your gifts provide financial support for students, vastly improve student life, create cutting-edge research opportunities and bring the best faculty to our campus.

Annual gifts are a vital source of support for scholarships, university programs, faculty, classroom enhancements, athletics, facilities improvements and much more. Your annual gifts help to advance K-State’s progress toward its goal to become a top 50 public research institution by 2025.

We ask that you continue leading the way by sharing the impact philanthropy can have on higher education, connecting with us and other K-Staters to grow our family of donors, and renewing your annual gift so K-State can continue to make a difference in students’ lives.

Here are some of the benefits to being in the 1863 Circle:

  • Invitations to 1863 Circle gatherings
  • Recognition of your membership on the KSU Foundation website and other publications
  • Regular campus updates from K-State students, faculty and staff
  • A thank-you gift to celebrate the renewal of your leadership contribution
  • A helpful contact at the KSU Foundation to help you stay connected to K-State
