Advancement Committee

Flashanthropy was founded to create scholarships for Kent State students. Today, we continue to raise money for our signature fund, the Pay It Flash Forward Scholarship. In addition, we also participate in other fundraising initiatives on campus that generate support for the university and our fellow classmates. Members of the Advancement Committee work to secure financial support from our peers. You’ll find us everywhere on campus, from Black Squirrel Fest to hanging out in the KSC.


If you’re interested in helping the Advancement Committee spread the message of philanthropy around campus, email Shelby Kelemen at or Paul Krouse at
