How much good can be squeezed into 24 hours? We’re finding out. Our All In for K-State giving day brings people together to improve the lives of K-Staters.
One day, one cause
Each year All In tackles a vital cause — from food insecurity to mental health. This big effort, which attracts enthusiastic donors from all 50 states, has raised $600,000+ in a single day.
What if we dreamed a little bigger?
All In asks that question year after year. As a catalyst for addressing students’ essential needs, All In has been kick-starting great causes since 2019.
All In zeroes in on finding solutions. It pinpoints specific problems where an influx of money will make a huge stride toward fixing them.
How do we find the next fundable project? Campus groups pitch their most forward-looking ideas every spring. A panel of judges picks the project with the greatest potential to help students succeed.
All In for K-State 2023
This year we are going All In for Financial Futures by bringing financial education to every new K-State student. This year’s project will:
- Weave financial literacy into K-State’s first-year academic program and a new zero-credit course
- Expand Powercat Financial’s peer-to-peer counseling
- Train student financial specialists living in campus and organized housing to point students toward financial well-being resources
- And more
Stories from this year’s campaign
This year’s All In for K-State will advance student success through financial wellness. Impulse buys. Bigger than necessary student loans. A monthly budget … what’s that?

Extending the impact
Although it’s known as a giving day, All In’s impact stretches far beyond 24 hours. With the K-State community behind us, we’ve taken big projects from start to flourish:
- Increasing access to and reducing stigma of mental health services. From a new app that delivers 24/7 teletherapy to suicide prevention training, All In donations from last year’s cause are already hard at work.
- The digital textbooks initiative, which replaces traditional books with online materials and rich multimedia, has saved students more than $5 million in textbook fees.
- And the Cats’ Cupboard food pantry — K-State’s first All In project — has blossomed. It now includes full-time staff, partnerships with grocery stores, and a slate of nutritious cooking classes at Lafene Health Center.
