Your contribution can help develop research and interventions, expand opportunities for KU students, reach more community members through our arts-based programs, and help us in our effort to reduce the stigma of addiction.

Your gift can help us:

Study and develop interventions. Provide early support for pilot research that can help us achieve federal investment for the study of innovative interventions for at-risk populations such as KU students. 

Reach more community members. Help us train more people to serve our community through programs such as SMART Recovery and our art programs at addiction and mental health services organizations. 

Expand partnerships. Support our efforts to connect services with organizations that support veterans and first-responders, regional Indigenous communities, and area schools. 

Support student achievement and research. Your gift can provide support for research awards for students mentored by our faculty, and help fund their professional development at national conferences.


An investment in the Cofrin Logan Center is an investment in our students, researchers and community. All gifts, no matter the size, help us achieve our mission.
