Glenn L Martin test flight in Salina, KS

Planned or Deferred Giving is an excellent way to make the most significant impact on our campus.

Pictured on the left is Glenn L. Martin, a former KWU student and aeronautical pioneer who received an Doctor of Laws (L.L.D.) degree from KWU in 1933. In 1940, Martin established the first endowed fund at Kansas Wesleyan with a contribution of $115,000.  Martin later left to KWU an estate gift of $100,000 received upon his death in 1955, and an additional $300,000 contribution received in 1974 through a life estate gift.

By making and documenting your future giving plans, Kansas Wesleyan can also make its plans.

We encourage you to look at Ways to Give and review the many possible ways you can help KWU.

If you have already made arrangements to give to KWU from your estate, we would like to know! Please inform Bill Grevas, Vice President for Institutional Advancement with an email to bill.grevas@kwu.edu or by calling 785-827-5541 ext. 1121.
