You can't

Jira project keys are kept as upper case, but are case insensitive. Any attempt to use cu, Cu, cU or CU will land you on CU no matter what.

The numbers can be done - see

I'd strongly recommend staying with the basic guidelines though - the first character should be a letter, the rest letters or numbers, and no more than 10 characters.

Edit - Bother! I've just noticed you mentioned "OnDemand". Everything I just said is right, but I don't think you can change the project key string on OnDemand, so you are stuck with letters.
