2011 All-University Campaign for K-State kicks off this week

The All-University Campaign for K-State kicks off this week with ice cream socials in Salina today and in Manhattan tomorrow.

 The campaign is an internal fundraising effort run by campus faculty and staff volunteers specifically focused on the participation of all employees, including the Manhattan campus, K-State Salina, K-State Olathe, K-State Alumni Association, KSU Foundation and K-State athletics. It is an annual campaign for all members of the campus community to participate in by supporting the areas of the university they care about most.

Through participation, we show our K-State pride and send a powerful message to our donors, legislators, corporations and foundations, alumni and friends that we believe in K-State’s future. Every gift, regardless of the size, makes a difference.

There are lots of ways to participate. Here are a few:

Attend an ice cream social. Enjoy some refreshing ice cream and great conversation with other K-Staters who are interested in advancing our great university. Click here for event information.
