Donations to the KU EcoHawks are vital to the success of the project. There are two primary methods of donations, monetary and physical (gifts in kind). For monetary donations, they may be either mailed using a pre-addressed gift card and envelope, or submitted online via KU Endowment’s website. Physical donation procedures are more complicated. The following information details the procedures to follow to ensure a successful donation to the KU EcoHawks.
- KU Endowment (KUEA) is recognized as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
- Donors may deduct contributions to KU Endowment as provided in Internal Revenue code section 170. Please contact a tax professional for further information.
