Apply for Funding Through the KU Giving Circle

The KU Giving Circle invites applications for funding from members of the KU community for the 22-23 academic year. Established in 2021, the Giving Circle seeks funding requests addressing needs as basic as program support or as diverse as funding for academic programs, athletics, student life activities, community outreach endeavors, and special initiatives that will enrich the lives of students at KU. Applications can be submitted online or by compiling all information into one PDF before Sept. 9. Those initiatives that meet both the mission and the strategic imperatives established by the university and Kutztown University Foundation will be considered. Approximately $6,000 is available to award. For more information, contact the KUF at together@kuf.org.
