Parents & Family Fundraisers
The K-State Parents and Family Program is funded solely by generous donations. Throughout the year the PFP holds different fundraisers to engage the K-State community. If you are interested in hosting a fundraiser for the PFP fund please call the PFP Hotline at 785-532-2222. Below are the PFP signature fundraisers.
Funds were collected on #GivingTuesday to raise funds for Powercat Financial. Funds were used to help fund peer financial counselors. Learn more about Powercat Financial.
Family Day Fill-Anthropy
During Family Day the PFP hosts a fundraiser to help fill the Cats' Cupboard and Career Closet. The PFP was integral in establishing a food pantry that responds to the immediate needs of current students. The Cats' Cupboard is open to all K-State students and provides food, hygiene items and cooking equipment that correspond with their personal needs. Students may utilize the pantry as often as they see fit. To donate to the Cats' Cupboard via Amazon, access their wish list here.
Giving back to the K-State community is one way we define "Family." The Career Closet collects new or lightly-used business professional attire to provide students access to clothes needed for interviews, internships, and jobs. Access the Career Closet Amazon wish list here!
