In recent years, we’ve discussed creating an endowment fund to keep Mini College going. Now, after working with KU Endowment and Jayhawk Global, we’ve established such a fund and have reached our initial endowment goal of $25,000.  We're thrilled that this endowed fund will guarantee a steady stream of funding that will keep the magic of Mini College alive for years to come. Thanks to those who have already contributed and helped us reach this goal. We also appreciate those who continue to contribute to grow this fund even further, so it can have an even greater impact. Additional contributions can increase the total investment, leading to higher returns and more resources for ongoing obligations and supporting new initiatives.
