Taking a page from entrepreneur’s books, the University of Kansas is turning to social media to help fund new projects.
Launch KU is a crowdfunding platform that will help fund smaller university projects. It started in November 2015, with the goal of allowing people to contribute smaller amounts to help fund university projects.
David Decker is the senior director of annual giving, which oversees Launch KU. He says budget issues nationwide have led some universities take innovative approaches to raise money.
