Recognition

With your permission, we will list your name and level of support in our fall catalog and on the Osher website.

Gifts at any level can be made "in memory of" or "in honor of" a special person.

Osher accepts major gifts (above $5,000) and planned gifts (through wills and trusts). If you wish to consider a larger gift, please call 785-864-1373 to speak with Linda Kehres, the director of the Osher Institute at KU.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend University of Kansas sponsored events. If you require reasonable accommodation in order to participate in an event, please email lpe@ku.edu or call 913-897-8530 at least three weeks before the first day of the event. Some events may require notice earlier than three weeks and require you to contact a specific individual; if so, that information is provided in the event-specific information.
