Uniting Generations … Securing Futures: A Kentucky State University Capital Campaign

KSU National Alumni Association President Dr. George Moore challenges every Alumnus to make a gift during this Alumni President’s Capital Campaign Challenge of raising $1,250,000 with 1000 Alumni giving $1,250. If you cannot give the $1,250 please give in an increment of 125, for example $1,250,000, $12500, $1,250, $125, $12.50 or any amount you are able to give. The objective is to get your name on the books as giving during the Capital Campaign.

Permanent Alumni Scholarship Fund (PAS)

The Permanent Alumni Scholarship Fund was established in 1990 to serve as the Kentucky State University National Alumni Association’s official vehicle for soliciting funds and for providing scholarships to eligible students attending Kentucky State University. The PAS Fund was created as an endowment that will allow its principal to stay intact while scholarships are granted from the earned interest. The KSU Foundation serves as custodian of the PAS Fund, and it is administered by the PAS Fund Committee, composed of a management group of eminent alumni. Each year from Homecoming to December 31, all alumni are contacted requesting a contribution. The PAS Fund Honor Roll, highlighted in the enclosed brochure, lists all donors who contributed last fiscal year. In addition to the Annual Giving Levels, the PAS Fund Honor Roll includes the Lifetime Giving Levels. Click Here  to go to the pledge card to give to the PAS Fund.

KSU Annual Campaign

The KSU Annual Fund is the annual giving program for Kentucky State University alumni and friends. It provides the cornerstone for KSU’s success. We operate on a fiscal year which runs July 1st through June 30th. Your annual support of the KSU Annual Fund helps keep the university affordable for students, provides opportunities for learning and discovery, and ensures KSU’s progress.

Areas of Support


Supporting the university’s scholarship initiatives is the most direct way alumni and friends of the university can make a difference in the lives of our students. Scholarships expand opportunities for undergraduate students by allowing the university to recognize and reward outstanding academic achievement and by helping to open KSU’s doors to students who would otherwise not be able to afford college.

University Fund (Unrestricted)

Kentucky State University relies on an annual base of unrestricted funds to support a wide variety of university programs, special projects, new research initiatives, and individual students. The University Fund is the foundation of this annual support, giving the university the agility to respond immediately to areas of greatest need.

Academic Areas (Schools and Colleges)

By choosing to invest in a specific academic unit, you are casting your vote of confidence in that instructional program. Moreover, you are supplying the necessary support to enhance established initiatives but also provide resources to create others. Either way, you are enriching the lives of the students by expanding their opportunities.

Student Activities

KSU is dedicated to creating a comprehensive educational experience for our students. We provide opportunities that complement the academic curricula and help students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including housing, dining, recreation, student organizations, health care, counseling, and career development.
