Double Your Support - KCU Scholar Match

If you've ever asked yourself, "How can I make sure my gift reaches its full potential?" or "How will KCU students realize my support?" you'll find an answer in the KCU Scholar Match. KCU has always offered you the opportunity to benefit current and future students through the meaningful gift of scholarship. But from now until September 2019, that opportunity is worth double thanks to the KCU Scholar Match.

What is the KCU Scholar Match?

KCU’s potential to attract the next generation of bright and compassionate osteopathic physicians, research scientists and psychologists is dependent on our ability to be a university that not only supports students academically, but also holistically. And today, financial assistance is a necessary component of that comprehensive support system.

Initiated by alumnus Bradley Vince, DO (COM ’98), Kansas City businessmen Brad Bergman and Tom McDonnell of the Jack and Glenna Wylie Charitable Foundation, the KCU Scholar Match maximizes the power of philanthropy by creating a $1 million fund that will match, dollar-for-dollar, every scholarship-designated contribution to KCU.

Dr. Vince, Mr. Bergman and the Wylie Charitable Foundation have joined together to promise up to $1 million dollars in match funds, but KCU will only receive these gifts if donors like you join in the cause.
