Mission and overview
The real estate function of the foundation is responsible for the acquisition, management and disposition of parcels of real estate that have been donated to or purchased by the foundation. To that end, the foundation has a supporting organization known as the KSU Charitable Real Estate Foundation (KSUCREF). The KSUCREF was formed to operate exclusively for the charitable purpose of benefiting, supporting and furthering the charitable activities of the KSU Foundation; more specifically to receive donations of, or acquire, manage, hold and/or dispose of real property for the benefit of the foundation and the university. For legal purposes, gifts of property should be donated specifically to the KSU Charitable Real Estate Foundation, NOT the Kansas State University Foundation or Kansas State University. A gift to the KSUCREF will still benefit the university in the manner expected by the donor.
