February 21, 2019

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Officials with the KU Endowment say the organization raised more than $1 million in 24 hours to benefit the University of Kansas.

Endowment officials announced Thursday that the 24-hour fundraising event on Wednesday — known as “One Day. One KU” — raised $1.08 million from 2,635 donors.

It was the second 24-hour fundraiser. This year’s total raised and number of donors surpassed last year’s total of a little more than $730,000 from 1,898 gifts.

The largest gift received this year was $100,000.

KU Endowment is a separate nonprofit organization from the university, but is the official fundraising organization for the school.
