This campaign has concluded, but if you would like to still make a gift to support Kansas Swimming and Diving or Kansas Athletics, please click here.
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 offered the program a $25,000 match fundraising challenge, to be completed by December 31, 2020. With the help of 60 donors we achieved the $25,000 on Dec. 2! On that very day, the same anonymous donor agreed to match dollar for dollar anything above the $25,000. We are still striving to raise $50,000 in addition to the match challenge. We continue to be up for that challenge and are looking forward to additional, meaningful conversations with 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
