Ways to Give

Give Monthly

Monthly giving is a convenient and effective way to donate and it saves on processing costs and bank charges, allowing a larger portion of your donation to go directly to our programs. To donate click here.

Honorary Gifts

Make a donation to KMEF in honor of a family member, friend, colleague, or a special event like a wedding, graduation, or birthday. If you choose, we will mail your designee a personalized letter, letting them know that you have made a gift in their name. To designate an honorary gift, click here.

KMEF Legacy Tree

You give to make a difference in the lives of others. However, sometimes it's not easy to give as much as you would like. The KMEF Legacy Tree is a deferred giving program that encourages charitable bequests in wills, life insurance policies and retirement accounts. Planned gifts such as these will allow you to contribute more to KMEF than you ordinarily could and, at the same time, create valuable tax benefits in your estate planning. KMEF scholars will use the opportunities that you create to sculpt a vision for a better future. Their work and the lives they touch will be part of your enduring legacy. To read more, click here.

Company Matching Gifts
One of the easiest ways to increase your gift to KMEF is through your employer’s matching gift program. To learn if your employer will match your donation to KMEF, please use our online matching gift finder here. If your employer is not on the list, you can also check with your human resources department to learn about your company's matching gift program.

Partnership Programs

By participating directly with the KMEF dream, your company can gain special recognition on our website, in our news publications, during our annual fundraising events and all promotional activities. Email us at admin@kmef.org for more information.

Mentoring Programs

Many times our time is more valuable than our money. Take time to become a big brother or big sister to one of our outstanding scholars. Programs such as CE 101 afford you an opportunity to reach out to a student and discuss how to best prepare for the upcoming college experience. Email us at admin@kmef.org to find out how you can volunteer.
