Give to K-State’s Parents and Family Program

Through scholarships, mentoring relationships and connecting students to services like Cats’ Cupboard food pantry, K-State’s Parents and Family program encourages every Wildcat.

We support Wildcats unconditionally

From Family Day to the Fostering Success initiative, the Parents and Family Program keeps “K-State family” connected. Services range from an e-newsletter that keeps families up to date, a student “Friendsgiving” and partnerships that strengthen services like Cats’ Cupboard and the Career Closet.

Encouraging students and keeping families informed

The Parents and Family Program, a community of people dedicated to student success, encourages Wildcats of every age to make lifelong memories at K-State.

An essential focus is helping students create their K-State home away from home. Whether that means plugging students into active learning communities or identifying services for health and wellbeing, the group’s work reinforces this message: You belong here.

K-State’s Parents and Family Program is funded solely by generous donors like you.

  • Fostering Success initiative. Provide “welcome to college” gift cards to students who were formerly involved with foster care. This is one way that K-State shows unconditional support to our Wildcats.
  • Give back to Cats’ Cupboard and the Career Closet. These services, open to all K-State students, provide free food, cooking equipment, clothing and hygiene items.
  • Student scholarships. Donations to the Parents and Family fund support scholarships for undergraduate students.
