Levels & Benefits

Areas of Giving

Ensure our Jayhawk student-athletes continue to perform at the highest levels athletically, academically and in the community through a gift to the Williams Education Fund. Gifts are 100 percent tax deductible if you waive all points and benefits. All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference!

A pledge, or committed donation amount, may be directed in writing or full payment to:

Unrestricted

This is the preferred method of giving as it allows Kansas Athletics the most latitude to fund the areas of greatest need and provide Jayhawk student-athletes with the resources necessary to be champions.

Scholarships

Toward tuition, fees, room, board and books for our student-athletes. This year, Kansas Athletics will award over $15.5 million in scholarships. Gifts in support of Williams Education Fund Scholarships allow our talented student-athletes to receive a first-class education at the University of Kansas.

Increased Giving Incentive

A new/increased unrestricted or scholarship pledge amount that is above the previous year, which is allocated toward scholarships, results in DOUBLE PRIORITY POINTS 

Margin of Excellence

Sport-specific gifts directed towards sport operating expenses but do not provide scholarship support.

Gift-In-Kind

Goods or services that are budget-relieving and pre-approved by the Athletics Director.

Priority System

The priority point system is an equitable way to determine priority for season tickets and reserved parking.  Members receive priority points for various areas of support. Priority points accumulate over the account’s history but are only activated for accounts with a minimum $100 (Outland Level) membership.

Members are ranked by their membership level and then by their priority point total within each membership level. Once all members are in the correct order, all are assigned a “Select-A-Seat” appointment to choose season ticket location out of available seat inventory.

Kansas Athletics reserves the right to modify and revise priority ticket and parking policies annually with approval from the Chancellor.
