Kansas Swimming and Diving Matching Challenge
Through the Williams Education Fund, Kansas Athletics generates financial support for all University of Kansas student-athletes with a responsibility to facilitate, promote, and enhance academic and athletic experiences. Recently, the Kansas swimming and diving program was approached with a unique opportunity. An anonymous donor has generously offered the program a $25,000 match fundraising challenge, to be completed by December 31, 2020. We are striving to raise $50,000 to meet and exceed our match challenge. We are up for that challenge and are looking forward to having some fun rallying our most loyal program supporters, including former swimmers and divers. With this financial support, we will make enhancements to the swimming and diving student-athlete experience while creating memories for a lifetime.

“The 2020 season was another one for the record books. New school records, Big 12 Championship point total, NCAA Championship qualifications, academic success and many more points of pride were a result of hard work and dedication in making our program the best possible. While 2020 brings challenges, we are confident our student-athletes can rise to any challenge.” -Coach Campbell
