Facing Tighter Budgets, KU Crowdsources To Raise Money For University Projects - LISA RODRIGUEZ, KCUR

LaunchKU is crowdsourcing to raise money for projects like Performing Arts 3to5, which puts on interactive performances for preschoolers. 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 crowdsourcing 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.
