On Monday, Oct. 26, the Kansas State University Foundation relocated to the K-State Office Park, a 14-acre tract of land at the corner of Kimball and Denison avenues, which is adjacent to the National Bio and Agro-defense Facility site and the Grain Science and Industry Complex.

"Our move to the new location at the K-State Office Park is an important step in an exciting future for the KSU Foundation," said Greg Willems, president and CEO of KSU Foundation. "The new facility will provide us with the office space needed to sustain fundraising for K-State well into the future. It will serve as the philanthropic home for K-State where donors will be recognized and celebrated for their generosity."

The foundation's new home is the first of four office buildings planned for the K-State Office Park, which will add 220,000 square feet of space for academic and commercial enterprises. In addition to the KSU Foundation, the first building also will house tenants including Garmin, U.S. Engineering, Veterinary and Biomedical Research Center and GE Johnson Construction Co.

"The completion of the first building in the K-State Office Park is an important milestone for K-State and the North Campus Corridor," said Kirk Schulz, Kansas State University president. "This will truly be a dynamic location for the KSU Foundation that will support K-State's increasing need for private support, as well as fuel economic growth and give corporate partners a prime location for university partnership. Ultimately, it will advance us toward our goal of becoming a Top 50 public research university by the year 2025."
