What is the K-State Proud student campaign?
K-State Proud is a student-led, nationally recognized fundraising campaign for K-State. Guided by the leadership of Student Foundation, the campaign encourages students to show their K-State pride through philanthropy. All student campaign donations establish Student Opportunity Awards for fellow K-State students. In the first nineteen years of the campaign, students have established a culture of philanthropy by raising more than $1.5 million for their peers who are struggling financially.
Students helping students
The spirit of family runs deep at K-State. The K-State Proud campaign is all about students helping students — about students taking care of the K-State family. By participating in this campaign and by supporting fellow K-Staters, we demonstrate to others that we value K-State not just as our school, but as an important contributor to our future. Help leave your legacy at K-State! The spring campaign that took place during COVID showed the true spirit of philanthropy throughout the K-State community. The campaign exceeded it's fundraising goal allowing more students to continue their education.
