Support KU School of Medicine-Wichita on One Day. One KU.

January 22, 2020

One Day. One KU. logo

One Day. One KU. was a fantastic 24 hours for KU School of Medicine-Wichita last year. Through the generosity of more than 100 donors, we raised more than $110,000 to directly support our school. This made us second in total fundraising of any single entity at KU. What an amazing accomplishment - we should all be proud! Overall, KU was able to raise more than $1,080,000 from nearly 2,300 donors.

Now we're gearing up for another exciting 24 hours on Thursday, Feb. 20. Please take a few minutes during this day to make a difference for an area of our school you are passionate about.

Matching donations

Several of our departments have secured matching gifts to help double your donation! For other departments, you have the option to write in where you want your gift to benefit.

To date, donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a certain amount for:

  • Family & Community Medicine: An anonymous donor has offered a match for the first $40,000 in gifts to Wichita Family & Community Medicine.
  • Internal Medicine: An anonymous match of $10,000 will be used for gifts to the Donna Sweet, M.D., Internal Medicine program fund, and an anonymous match of at least $10,000 will be used for gifts to the Wichita Internal Medicine Residency Program Fund.
