What is KU Cares?
KU Cares events rally Jayhawk volunteers who lend their time and talents to benefit their communities. Alumni across the country are already involved in community causes and have shown a strong desire to leverage KU networks to further those efforts.
How can your network get involved?
Volunteers are responsible for creating, organizing and promoting KU Cares events, with approval from the Alumni Association.
Find events that gather Jayhawks for a good cause, but avoid events that focus only on fundraising.
What kinds of events can you do?
- Provide meals for the homeless
- Clean a community park
- Volunteer for Special Olympics
- Participate in Habitat for Humanity
