College of Education


We Believe…in Education

The Wildcat experience doesn’t end on graduation day. According to many College of Education philanthropists, the promise of a better future with high-quality, passionate teachers inspires gifts of all sizes.

Giving to the K-State College of Education

Thank you for your commitment to our students, our university and the College of Education’s future teachers. We are amazed by the generosity of the K-State Family. During countless conversations with alumni and friends of the college across the country, more often than not our conversations turn to one theme: belief. You so believe in the college’s ability to prepare future educators that you have invested your time and resources to support our faculty, students and programs.

In 2015, Kansas State University launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign in history. The goal was to raise $1 billion to advance its strategic vision of becoming a top 50 research university. Later, the campaign was extended into the year 2020 with a goal of raising $1.4 billion, and the College of Education was asked to raise $18 million. Because of your belief and commitment to the work that takes place every day in Bluemont Hall, the college’s goal has been met – and surpassed.

Because of you, the college’s scholarship support has doubled since 2010 as has its endowment. Your commitment ensures that educators from K-State will continue to have an impact in all 105 counties in the state of Kansas, all 50 states in the U.S. and many countries across the globe. The fact that our alumni believe so much in our college is compelling. Your philanthropic investment into the college extends far beyond the walls of Bluemont Hall.

Not everyone with a charitable intent can write a big check. It’s more important to have the desire to make a difference. Many college donors structured their gifts unique to their personal financial situations guided by the foundation’s gift planning experts. It has never been easier to take care of your family and your alma mater.

Please contact us if you would like more information about making a gift or if you have included the college in your estate plans. It’s important to have your gift documented through the foundation for clarity purposes, and because we want you to receive the recognition you deserve!
