10 days left to honor Professor Allen Ford

August 21, 2019

Thank you for all you have done to contribute to the success of the campaign honoring Professor Allen Ford. Whether you shared the campaign with your friends and classmates or made a donation, posted a link or made a phone call—it all adds up to one big show of support for a man whose legacy is undeniable.


Since the campaign launch on Tax Day in April, we have raised a total of $91,117.56 from 90 donors for the Allen Ford Tax Fellow fund and the Allen and Joelle Ford Scholarship in Accounting. The Allen Ford Tax Fellow fund provides faculty support to ensure that Professor Ford’s teaching legacy continues, while the Allen and Joelle Ford Scholarship was established by Allen in 1997 to provide support to business students majoring in Accounting.


We are making one final ask before the campaign ends on August 31st. Our goal is to reach $100,000 in honor of Allen Ford’s distinguished career at the KU School of Business. You can still participate with a gift of any amount on our LaunchKU platform at and by sharing this message with anyone you know who may have been impacted by Allen Ford. Let’s show Allen how much his work has done and will continue to do in the lives of Business Jayhawks.


Rock Chalk!

Thank you to everyone that has donated so far!

However, we are not done yet!  There is still time to spread the word to your friends and classmates so they can have the chance to honor Allen’s legacy with a contribution.


Thank you again for all of your generous donations that have helped us get to where we are now.  Together we can honor Allen Ford’s lasting legacy at the School of Business with gifts that can benefit future generations of Jayhawks.

Thank you, Jayhawks!
