All In for K-State

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.

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:

  • 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.

Help increase access to mental health services and reduce the stigma at K-State. Go All In for K-State

Today, March 23, Kansas State University is hosting its third All In for K-State day of giving with the bold objective to increase access to mental health services for K-State students.

Give to All In for K-State

The next All In for K-State cause will be announced in the spring of 2023. In the meantime, please give to any of these worthy past causes.
