Why We Need Your Help
Annual gifts to the Ahearn Fund and priority season-ticket purchases represent the lifeblood of K-State Athletics and allow the department to achieve its vision of a model intercollegiate athletics program.
The $82 million budget for FY2019 includes $10.3 million for student-athlete scholarships to be paid to the university. The remaining portion of Ahearn Fund contributions, along with capital support donations and ticket revenues, are strategically invested in providing A World-Class Student-Athlete Experience, to the more than 450 student-athletes that represent K-State, which includes team travel, equipment, academic support, and sports medicine treatment.
Which Gift is Right for You?
Contributing to the Ahearn Fund not only supports K-State Athletics and each and every one of our 450-plus student-athletes, but this support also BENEFITS YOU, our loyal Ahearn Fund members.
By donating $50 or more annually to the Ahearn Fund you qualify for various sport-specific and non-sport-specific benefits throughout the following year as well as priority access to seating, parking and exclusive member events throughout the year.
