The University of Kansas is home to not only one of the best basketball teams in the country, but it is also the home of Rock Chalk Revue, one of the largest student-run philanthropies in the country, and this year it is celebrating its 75th anniversary!

Rock Chalk Revue is an annual student-run philanthropy show in which student organizations write, produce, and perform original musical productions. Student groups start planning their shows the week they return from Summer break, and practice all Winter and early Spring in preparation for the final production that takes place in early April at KU’s Lied Center.

As a cherished tradition at the University of Kansas, the Revue brings passionate students together to help support great causes and make positive impacts in the Lawrence community. Since its inception in 1949, Rock Chalk Revue has contributed over $2,500,000 to various local charitable organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, Folds of Honor, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Humane Society, Willow Center, and more. Last year alone, over $82,000 was raised to benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence and the Dream Maker Fund. 

These numbers would not be attainable without our wonderful sponsors who generously give year after year. The impact they make to students, alumni, and families involved with the show have a lasting impact from the one-of-a-kind memories that result from Rock Chalk Revue. We aim to benefit the companies that sponsor us by granting exposure and connection to our followers and partners. If your company is looking to get involved with generous students, campus leaders, and philanthropic communities surrounding Lawrence, The University of Kansas Rock Chalk Revue is a great match for you4

Rock Chalk Revue also provides donations to the Dream Maker Fund of KU. Many KU students encounter challenging times in their personal lives during college. The Dream Maker Fund attempts to make those challenging times a little easier by assisting with financial burden. The DMF is intended for students who are facing a challenging time in their life and are in critical need of assistance through the journey to a college degree. For last year’s show, our Sponsors raised over $20k for the Dream Maker Fund – THANK YOU!
