An integral part of the “K-State Pledge” is transparency regarding how donor contributions and ticket purchases are allocated and utilized by the department.
Student-athletes and their experience at K-State are at the forefront of our mission. Your gifts and ticket purchases will always be used only to benefit Wildcat student-athletes, through scholarships, services, such as academic support and sports medicine, or direct competition needs of our teams. No monies received directly from fans or donors will be used on expenses related to buyouts of previous contracts.
Recently publicized buyout obligations will be funded from K-State’s annual Big 12 and NCAA revenue-shared distributions. K-State receives approximately $9 million annually in Big 12 Conference and NCAA revenue distributions derived largely from television contracts, bowl agreements, NCAA post-season basketball and conference championship events.
Your input and support is very important to us, so please continue to send us your thoughts, concerns and suggestions. As always, thank you for your continued support of K-State Athletics.
