The Association helps KU recruit the brightest students in Kansas, advocate for legislative policies, connect the powerful network of Jayhawks worldwide and much more.

  • Items must be paid for before departing the event. We accept all major credit cards.
  • Everything is sold “as is/where is.” Refunds or exchanges are not permitted unless the donor is unable to fulfill the obligation as described.
  • The buyer waives any claims of liability against the Alumni Association for injuries or other damages that may result from use of services or property sold though one of the Alumni Association’s auctions.
  • IRS rules state that the only tax deduction for the purchase of auction items is the amount paid in excess of the fair market value.

  • Minimum bids may be suggested, with minimum increments to raise a bid. You will determine the value of the items, so please bid only what you are willing to pay.
