    Take the Ever Onward challenge!

    Ever Onward is the KU Student Endowment Board’s crowdfunding campaign. It’s an opportunity for KU students to follow, connect with and support the causes at the university that they are most passionate about. And it’s an opportunity for KU student organizations to raise funds – and to win cash prizes!

    The Student Endowment Board has selected a number of organizations to participate, based on submitted applications. Those organizations have eight weeks to encourage their fellow students, family and friends to support their student organization, and help them raise funds for their KU cause.

    KU Endowment will offer $10,500 in prize money for awards to the groups that can gain the most support for their causes. At the close of the competition, each student group will receive all donations it raised, and award-winning groups will receive additional funds for the cause they designated during the challenge.


    Awards will be deposited into the KU fund your student organization designates.

    • Highest number of donors: $5,000
    • Second highest number of donors: $3,000
    • Third highest number of donors: $1,000

    Another $1,500 will be awarded to groups via social media contest, video contests, and other competitions that will be announced closer to kickoff.


    Kick-off: February 15

    Competition: eight weeks

    Closing: April 10
