Make a gift

Thank you for your interest in providing support for the Native Medicinal Plant Research Program.

Our program has garnered strong public interest, and we are grateful for our current funding. However, much of that funding is directed toward activities specifically related to research aimed at developing new herbal remedies, cosmetics, veterinary products, pharmaceuticals and other products.

We welcome gifts that support activities such as:

  • expanded educational outreach;
  • further development of our informational database;
  • additional support for student involvement in our program;
  • development of major projects at our medicinal garden;
  • field expeditions related to conservation of medicinal plants and the ecosystems that support them;
  • new initiatives.

Every gift, large or small, makes an important difference, and 100 percent of your gift to KU Endowment for our program will benefit it directly.
