KU Cares Month of Service

KU Cares Month of Service

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.

KU Cares Month of Service

The first KU Cares Month of Service initiative will take place throughout the month of November. Jayhawks everywhere can organize service projects and recruit volunteers to serve meals, help with yard work, build homes and more to help improve their communities.

Coordinate a project

Network volunteers should fill out a KU Cares project submission form to have your service project added to the KU Alumni calendar and promoted to alumni in your area.
