Johnson Cancer Research Center

Our Benefactors

We are extremely grateful to all our generous contributors, whose gifts make our programs possible!
Our programs to advance K-State cancer research depend on private donations. No matter the size,
all gifts add up to make a difference, and stay right here at K-State—95% going directly to cancer
research and 5% to advance the university. We thank all our supporters for helping K-State fight cancer!

LAND GRANT LEGACY SOCIETY

The Land Grant Legacy Society represents the past, present and future of Kansas state University.
