Other Areas of Impact
WKU Athletics is currently seeking funding for various facility construction projects, as outlined in the WKU Athletic Facilities Master Plan. Current plans call for renovation of existing facilities as well as construction of new facilities throughout the WKU campus. Over $100 million has been invested in WKU athletic facilities over the last decade, providing the championship level amenities necessary to recruit and train WKU student-athletes.
Sport-Specific Enhancement Funds
Gifts to sport-specific enhancement funds directly supplement the operating budgets of individual WKU sport programs. Donations can be made to any of the 16 WKU NCAA sponsored sport prgrams. May click here, select Athletics > then Choose sport/area to donate to.
*Contributions through enhancement funds are seperate from general HAF giving levels and do not qualify for donor level rank or benefits with HAF. Donors receive 2 priority points in their HAF accounts for each $100 donated to any of the mentioned funds, as outlined in the HAF Priority Points System.
Endowments create a lasting legacy by providing educational opportunities through scholarship funding. Athletic endowments are funds used to provide the investment necessary to offset scholarship costs for approximately 400 student-athletes, year after year. An individual, or business, can establish an endowed athletic scholarship beginning at $25,000, made payable over a five year period.
