Rock Chalk Stop the Clock
During the fall, the Student Endowment Board hosts “Rock Chalk Stop the Clock.” Without donor and alumni support, the school year would end in late fall each year, with state funding and tuition only being able to support the university to that point. Board members table on campus to encourage students to give thanks to the numerous donors that make our school year possible.
I Heart KU Week
During the spring, leading up to our annual Hawk Mud Fest event, the Board hosts a week-long fundraiser called “I Heart KU Week.” Tabling on campus each day, Board members offer t-shirts and other give-a-ways to students for giving a small donation, which goes to the Student Leadership Award, an annual scholarship for students. The aim of this week is to have current students give back (even in the smallest ways) to other students, much as our donors do for us each year.
