Because Many of us Find Ourselves Stranded on a Ledge

This campaign has concluded, but if you would like to still make a gift to support the David and Louis Cicotello Memorial Fund please click here.

 

Recently, a University of Kansas graduate student in English was unable to return home during the pandemic or work over the summer because of visa restrictions. Fortunately, the David and Louis Cicotello Memorial Fund assisted the student with financial support to manage a critical, emergency need. 

 

Now, more than ever, college students face challenges other than the cost of tuition and fees. Food insecurity, medical expenses, or emergency needs create stress and possibly delay a student’s progress to graduation.

 

The originator of the fund, David Cicotello, c'75, g'77, has pledged $5,000 and hopes to see that generosity doubled through this campaign. Please join us and make a difference by donating.

 

We also encourage you to visit the websites below to learn more about the donor and his incredible experience that led to establishment of this fund:

  • Article written by Stephen Hill of the KU Alumni Association.
  • Video of David produced by the Storytellers Project.
  • Podcast produced by Backpacker.
