We want to thank you for your continued support and understanding during one of the most complex times in our country and within Kansas Athletics. Williams Education Fund members have long established a legacy of the most passionate and loyal supporters in the country. Time and time again, you have supported Kansas Athletics’ relentless pursuit of excellence on and off the field. More than ever, we cannot do this without YOU!
Kansas Athletics is facing the greatest financial challenge we have seen and are going to need our Williams Fund supporters to join in with us and be a part of something bigger. As we recently shared, our annual support is down 20 percent this year and we won’t be able to close this gap without you. By giving 20 percent more for 2020 to the Jayhawk Relief Fund, YOU can make yet another lasting impact.
To directly fund our student–athlete services during these challenging times, we are excited to announce our 20% for 2020 Campaign as part of the Jayhawk Relief Fund. We are asking our loyal Williams Education Fund supporters to consider giving 20 percent more than their current Williams Fund pledge in 2020. With just 20 percent more, we can begin to close the financial gap that COVID-19 has created.
Throughout all of the uncertainty, it is easy to lose sight of the over 500 Jayhawk student-athletes that you have continued to impact. Our Jayhawk student-athletes need the academic, medical, leadership development and mental health services that your contribution helps fund. Now more than ever, Jayhawk student-athletes need YOU.
