The Kenya Methodist University Alumni Association (KeMUAA) has mobilized its members to initiate the KeMUAA Endowment Fund, which is geared towards mobilizing funds to support brilliant but needy students from marginalised areas, minority groups, the disabled and those without any recourse to other sources of funds, through scholarships.
Currently KeMU has campuses in Meru (Main Campus), Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Nyeri and Kisii. In our admissions, we do not discriminate in terms of religion, race, gender, ethnicity or financial background. This has led to great access to higher education by the youth and the hitherto unreached. Up to July 2014, KeMU has graduated 20,641 students who are making a difference in different sectors of the Kenyan economy and abroad. The above notwithstanding, every year we have brilliant students dropping out of the University due to lack of school fees. Majority of the students dropping out are from marginalised and hardship areas in this Country.
Why an Endowment Fund
An Endowment Fund has both an investment and scholarship components to make it sustainable. The money raised will be invested and the proceeds will be used for Students’ Scholarships and University Development.
When it will be launched
Kenya Methodist University Alumni Association has established an Endowment fund that will be launched on 27th March 2015 at Kenyatta International Conference Center.
How you can participate in the Event
You can make your gift to KeMU Alumni in a number of ways. Some of the most common are listed below.
Two of the items—planned giving and gifts-in-kind—get a more detailed description in other areas of the website.
You can think about giving as something you give today, such as cash, or something you give tomorrow, a gift that you plan. Whatever type of gift you give will make a positive difference to KeMU students.
