Application deadlines for student organization projects are as follows:
If you have all four facets in place, LaunchKU can help. KU Endowment provides a free platform for your use, as well as advice and feedback throughout the process. But crowdfunding is a lot of work. You must commit to promoting your project via email and social media during the 30 days of your campaign. Please choose a campaign timeline during which you can be actively engaged in raising awareness for your project.
If you answered ‘yes’ to all these questions, we encourage you to apply to participate in LaunchKU using our online application. Applications for faculty and staff projects are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are selected at the discretion of KU Endowment. If you have questions, please contact Brenna Leahy, Sr. Multichannel Digital Campaign Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-832-7338.
