Kansas State University has been named “Generous U” for its student philanthropy, K-State Proud, by the Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy at Brandeis University.

K-State Proud is a student-led, nationally recognized fundraising campaign for K-State. Guided by the leadership of Kansas State University Student Foundation, the campaign encourages students to show their K-State pride through philanthropy. All student campaign donations establish Student Opportunity Awards for fellow K-State students. Since the first year of the campaign, students have established a culture of philanthropy by promoting the idea of “students helping students.”

"The Generous U award is a well-earned accolade for the K-State Proud Campaign,” said Abbey Brown, president of K-State’s Student Foundation. “Over the last seven years, K-State Proud has raised more than $650,000 for Student Opportunity Awards, and as a result, more than 300 students have been able to stay at K-State. This speaks volumes of the generosity and philanthropic hearts of K-State students. The Generous U award will help inspire the campaign team to keep creating innovative ideas and pursuing high goals in order to continue to serve the K-State community and help keep the K-State family together.”
