The Development team builds philanthropic relationships with alumni, families and friends to provide investment in elements vital to a K education. These include student access and success, faculty and staff resources, K-Plan and co-curricular activities, athletics, and the physical campus. As a part of a robust partnership between fundraisers and a support team, we identify, engage, solicit and steward donors who make major and planned gifts to strengthen K’s ability to fulfill its mission.

Advancement Services is the backbone of the division, providing oversight of the data, technology and reporting infrastructure that keeps us connected to thousands of alumni and donors. They are also the division’s key partner with the Business Office, as they are responsible for gift administration—processing the thousands of gifts, large and small, that come to K each year!
