About LaunchKU

LaunchK is the University of Kansas crowdfunding platform. It provides an opportunity for KU students to connect with and support the causes at the university that they are most passionate about. The platform is also an opportunity for KU students to raise funds for their organizations.


The Student Endowment Board reviews applications on an ongoing basis and provides individual advisory support for each student project. Previously, student organizations were invited to participate once a year in Ever Onward, a crowdfunding platform specific to student organizations. Now, organizations and individual students can crowdfund year-round.

Each participating organization is paired up with a project manager, a trained Student Endowment Board member, who helps provide individual support and guidance throughout the campaign. The organizations are encouraged to create a culture of philanthropy in the Jayhawk community by inviting fellow KU students, family and friends to support their KU cause.

If your organization is interested in participating in LaunchKU to help your passion take flight, please visit www.kuendowment.org/launchkustudent.
