All In for K-State's Impact

All In for K-State’s impact extends far beyond the 24 hours when K-Staters have come together to achieve one important objective. Since our two first days of giving, K-State continues to realize extraordinary outcomes: Cats’ Cupboard has secured several partnerships to expand their services and Textbooks 2.0 has already saved students nearly a million dollars! Explore the incredible impact made at K-State through All In for K-State.

Cats’ Cupboard

March 27, 2019

$320,560 raised

1,436 gifts made

In 2019, K-Staters went All In for K-State to increase food security by supporting Cats’ Cupboard: The K-State Food Pantry. Since then, the following has been made possible:

Financial and in-kind support for Cats’ Cupboard has substantially increased compared to support raised prior to All In for K-State 2019.

Companies like Continental Mills, Dillons Food Stores and more created partnerships to benefit students now and in the future.

Call Hall Dairy Bar and Cats’ Cupboard became partners and currently support 57 students, providing means to purchase perishable items from Call Hall including milk, ground beef, eggs and cheese.

Cooking classes are now offered by Cats’ Cupboard through a Kansas Health Foundation grant and in partnership with Lafene Health Center, the Morris Family Multicultural Student Center and Mama Fang’s International Market. Students select ingredients and dieticians from Lafene provide healthy recipes. These classes also create shared cultural connections through food.

A professional organizer was hired to improve how the pantry’s space is utilized.

Cats’ Cupboard was able to purchase multiple refrigeration units and now offers students healthy perishable food.

With a signature gift by Charlie and Debbie Morrison, the Morrison Family Director of Cats’ Cupboard became an endowed position, enabling stable leadership for the food pantry.

The campus food pantry was able to expand services to include Kansas State University faculty and staff.

Textbooks 2.0

March 24, 2021

$503,161 raised

1,135 gifts made

In 2021, the K-State family rallied to help significantly reduce the cost of textbooks for K-State students. Since then, the following has been made possible:

In the first grant cycle, 34 grants totaling $159,500 have been provided to faculty to convert their textbooks to affordable Textbook 2.0 alternatives.

10,506 students will pay less for textbooks as a result of the first cycle’s transition to alternative textbooks.

$765,510 is projected in total annual savings as a result of course materials transitioning to alternative textbooks in this first grant cycle.

Textbook subjects ranging from public speaking, French, digital leadership and macroeconomics were among those transitioned to Textbooks 2.0.

Students appreciate more affordable textbooks options. According to one K-State student, “With the lower costs, it’s not burdensome to purchase these books. It feels like a privilege to have that kind of open access to read and learn from Textbooks 2.0. This will change the future of education.”

The second post-All In for K-State grant cycle is wrapping up soon. Check back soon to see the impact grow!
