About LaunchKU

LaunchKU is the crowdfunding platform for the University of Kansas. It provides an opportunity for KU students to connect with and support the causes at the university they are most passionate about. The platform also serves as an outlet for student organizations, club sports teams and Greek chapters to raise money for their priorities and initiatives. 

KU Endowment reviews applications on an ongoing basis and provides individual advisory support for each project. Student-led projects can crowdfund during two cycles annually, one in the fall and one in the spring.

Participating 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.
