The Orange Krush Foundation provides students the opportunity to give back to their University, campus, and community. Since its creation in 1998, the Orange Krush Foundation has raised and donated over $2.7 million to local and national charities. Organizations interested in receiving funds from the Orange Krush Foundation must complete a grant application during the summer and will be notified of their application’s status by late September/early October.


The Orange Krush Foundation raised and donated approximately $150,000 to the University and 58 charities during the 2013-2014 season.


In addition to supporting the community financially, members of Orange Krush are encouraged to actively volunteer with local community organizations.  To get its members even more involved in the community, this year’s Orange Krush Foundation Board has lots of exciting opportunities planned. Be on the lookout for more info over the next few months!
