All contributions to K-State Athletics and the Ahearn Fund are considered gifts to the Kansas State University Foundation and are credited at full value for purposes of the donor's gift record.

Under current Internal Revenue Code provisions, no more than 80% of an amount paid to or for the benefit of an institution of higher education may be treated as charitable contribution if, as a result of the payment, the donor receives the right to purchase tickets for seating at an athletic event in an athletic stadium at the institution.

Members may decline benefits and deduct 100% of their contribution. Please contact the Ahearn Fund office for more information.

Please consult a personal tax advisor concerning the deductibility of any contribution to the Ahearn Fund.
