The annual giving program is the core of private support for K-State Athletics. It continues to be one of the largest sources of revenue for K-State Athletics, with cash gifts of $18.1 million received in 2016.

A donor becomes an Ahearn Fund member with an annual contribution of $50 or more. Gifts can be made by appreciated assets, cash, check, electronic funds transfer, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard). Checks should be made payable to “Ahearn Fund”.

Anyone can make an impact with their gift, regardless of amount. The Ahearn Fund assists our student-athletes by providing financial support for scholarships, facilities, and other programs that enable them to realize their dreams of achieving a quality college education while participating in athletics on a nationally competitive level.

When you invest in the continued success of K-State Athletics, your support enables young men and women to become part of the K-State Family. Even when you can’t be in Manhattan for home games, you can show your pride and passion with a gift that helps create a world-class experience for Wildcat student-athletes.
