#KStateStrong Emergency Response Fund
K-State employees experiencing financial hardships because of COVID-19 furloughs may apply for grant funds here.
Many members of the K-State family have asked how they can help with K-State's COVID-19 response. The #KStateStrong Emergency Response Fund will address emerging needs of K-State students, faculty and staff. This fund was created with ultimate flexibility and maximum impact in mind. Contributions will be made immediately available to President Myers so he can bridge any gap in funding that presents itself and strengthen the K-State family during these uncertain times.
There is a lot of work to be done, but we know that K-Staters never shy away from a challenge. With your support, we will stay #KStateStrong.
In addition to this fund, two other vital funds have been identified for support. They include Cats’ Cupboard: K-State’s Food Pantry and the Emergency Student Scholarship Fund. Both of these funds directly enhance K-State’s ability to serve its student population during this time.
K-State Proud is K-State's premier student-led philanthropy, benefitting students through Student Opportunity Awards. These awards help students who have exhausted all other options to continue to their education.
In these uncertain times, shirts will not be distributed, however your gift will apply 100% toward helping students in dire financial circumstances stay in school and graduate.
Cats' Cupboard: The K-State Food Pantry
This service still remains open and functional with appropriate COVID-19 related measures. For students who may find themselves financially strapped due to loss of work, Cats’ Cupboard is here to provide access to nutritious food and support through initiatives that promote health, success and well-being.
