Capital gifts are contributions made outside your annual Ahearn Fund donation and play a pivotal role in the enhancement, construction and maintenance of first-class athletic facilities. Top-notch facilities are not just important for recruiting the nation’s best and brightest student-athletes, but also equip them with the best tools to pursue their scholastic and athletic goals.

As we move into the future of K-State Athletics, philanthropic support from our loyal donor base and beyond will secure the future for our outstanding student-athletes and K-State Athletics.

If you are interested in giving to specific capital projects or would like to receive further information, please contact Josh McCowan in the Ahearn Fund office at 785-532-7881 or via email at

Recently Completed Projects

As K-State Athletics continues to provide for our over 450+ student-athletes a world-class experience, multiple capital improvements have been made possible through the generosity of Ahearn Fund members.

Over $210 million of new facilities projects have taken place since 2009, providing enhanced daily experiences for ALL Wildcat student-athletes:

  • Ice Family Basketball Center
  • Intercollegiate Rowing Center
  • Mike Goss Tennis Stadium
  • Vanier Family Football Complex
  • West Stadium Center

Many loyal K-State Alumni, Business Partners and passionate Wildcat fans have given above and beyond their Ahearn Fund annual donation to make many of these capital projects a reality.
