The majority of Kutztown students work at least one job to help pay for their education, and a staggering 80% of our students have financial need. Your support helps to attract and retain tomorrow’s leaders.
The Campaign for Kutztown University
Help us reach our goal to raise $40 million for scholarships, emergency funds, and student experiences – and strengthen our network of alumni – to ensure every Golden Bear gets their Golden Opportunity.
KU students have determination, grit and dreams to make the world a better place. However, many current and prospective students cannot afford to make those dreams a reality. Your gift can transform their lives and ensure they’re poised for success.
Unanticipated expenses force students to make hard choices, and they are often forced to put their education on hold. Your support can help students cross the academic finish line.
Out-of-classroom experiences, such as internships, research with faculty, and student teaching, are critical to discovering passions and landing jobs – but many students cannot afford to take advantage of them. Your support ensures our graduates’ work and world-readiness.
Our alumni are our living legacy and proof of the value of a KU education. Help us to strengthen this powerful network by showing support at an event, networking with students and other alumni, serving on an advisory board or engaging with us on social media.
