 K-State couple honors alumni and encourages study abroad with planned gift
When planning their legacy at Kansas State University, Curt ’73 and Sheryl ’73 Frasier considered many things. They reflected on their memorable undergraduate years in the College of Agriculture and College of Education. They thought about the impact they wanted to have on generations of K-Staters they would never meet. They also considered how easy it was to plan their gift and how well it fit with their long-term financial goals. 

“The KSU Foundation staff is so helpful in assisting with the development of estate plans that allow alumni and friends to take care of their own needs while planning for ways to help students, faculty and the university,“ Curt said.

The Frasiers named the KSU Foundation as owner and beneficiary of their life insurance policies, designating future support for K-State students to study overseas and for the Alumni Association to create the Alumni Excellence Award to honor exceptional K-State alumni.

“The award will recognize alumni whose careers, service and achievements exemplify the spirit, values and excellence of the university,” Curt said. “We have so many alumni who deserve this type of recognition.”

The couple wanted to invest in studying abroad after witnessing the effect that experience had on their children. 

“They gained such special insight. It impacted who they are today and how they will be able to help others who are less fortunate than themselves,” Curt said. “Studying abroad also allows the passion K-Staters have for others to be felt outside of our state and nation.”
