Every gift makes a difference. 

Now more than ever, we need well-trained social workers and social work researchers. Your gift to the School of Social Welfare with help change social work practice and social policy to support greater dignity, respect and empowerment for the people and communities served by the social work profession.

KU School of Social Welfare Dean Michelle Mohr Carney is traveling the country eager to meet and discuss how the KU School of Social Welfare strives to attain its vision "All individuals, families, & communities utilize their power to achieve justice, equity, & well-being." Through education, scholarship and research, the School believes we can transform lives. We can't do it alone. If you believe in this same mission, join us, and together we can change the world!

Inaugural 24-hour giving campaign One Day. One KU. raises $734,621

KU held its first One Day. One KU. on February 20, 2018. The University raised $734,621 in a 24-hours.

We identified two funding priorities for ONE DAY. ONE KU. — the newly-created Student Emergency Fund and the Dean’s Opportunity Fund, both of which are critical and necessary. Gifts to the School of Social Welfare Emergency Fund will help provide necessary support for students who experience an unexpected need. Many don’t know where to turn and, without support, would be forced to take a break from school or drop out completely. Contributions to the Dean’s Opportunity Fund will provide unrestricted dollars and enable the dean to direct funds where the need is greatest.

School of Social Welfare has raised $7,355 from 39 gifts! Thank you to all who helped us through spreading the word, creating a challenge and donating. View the full results of the School of Social Welfare on the One Day. One KU. website.
