Kansas State Seeks to Raise $1B

Kansas State University and the K-State Foundation are scheduled to begin a campaign later this year to raise $1 billion for the university.

The Manhattan Mercury reports the university’s Innovation and Inspiration Campaign kicks off in October and seeks to raise money for Kansas State’s bid to become a top-50 public research university by 2025.

The events to start the campaign are scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 7-10.

Kansas State says the event aims to gather more than 1,000 students, faculty members, staff members, alumni and friends to open the public phase of the campaign.

Additional details about the campaign haven’t been released.
