Research. Sustainability. Outreach.



The KU Biodiesel Initiative relies on the generosity of the Lawrence community, research grant funding, and corporate and individual donations.  We raise additional funds throughout the year with the KUBI Discount Card and other seasonal events.  As a non-profit organization, essentially every dollar we receive goes directly back into the initiative. 

There are a variety of ways to show your support for the KU Biodiesel Initiative; whether it be volunteering time, donating supplies or even something as simple as liking us on Facebook, helps us to spread the word about biodiesel and its benefits.  Should you prefer to show your support by making a donation, we have created tiered donation levels listed below for both individuals as well as companies.  Donations are tax deductible.  You can donate to the Biodiesel Initiative Account with KU Endowment 

Please contact Susan Williams for more information on becoming a KUBI donor.

All donor levels receive a complimentary KUBI Discount Card as a gift.
