Hall Center For The Humanities

Capital Campaign

How You Can Help

Over the next five years, we have six strategic priorities that will be significantly promoted by the benefit of private donations.

An unprecedented award of a third National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant of $425,000 and required private match of $1,275,000, if met by July 31, 2015, will provide us with a $1,700,000 endowment to underwrite two new programs: Research Collaboratives and Scholars on Site. These programs will put the Hall Center at the forefront of collaborative research and make KU known as a place for innovative humanities research. They will transform the way research is undertaken in humanities disciplines, and create public scholarship that meets community needs and demonstrates the relevance of the humanities to the public wellbeing.

Your one-time gift or multi-year pledge will advance the understanding of the humanities at KU, throughout the state and beyond. To help us meet the NEH Challenge Grant by July 31, 2015, please make a gift online or contact Lindsay Hummer, development director, at (785) 832-7428 or lhummer@kuendowment.org.
