Make a contribution of $100 or more and we’ll send you a KU campus scene candle, created by Lawrence’s beloved Waxman Candles.

Designed & printed in Lawrence, the candle features some of KU’s iconic buildings, including Dyche Hall, Lippincott Hall, Fraser Hall, Campanile, Strong Hall & Allen Fieldhouse. It’s filled with Waxman’s quality food grade paraffin wax and scented with the custom “Wave The Wheat” fragrance, a nostalgia-inducing blend of limestone, walnut & sweet wheat. And, the decorative glass is reusable!
