Loyalty. Commitment. Leadership.

The National Leadership Circle (NLC) of the Ahearn Fund is a comprehensive program for K-State’s top level of annual donors to athletics. In appreciation for their impact on the pursuit of athletic and academic excellence, NLC members are recognized with Bronze, Silver, Gold or Diamond levels and receive special benefits accordingly.

Since its formation in the fall of 2009, the National Leadership Circle of the Ahearn Fund has seen considerable growth. Not only has membership increased, but the percentage of dollars contributed annually by NLC members has grown substantially each year. The NLC was established with just over 180 members and since then has seen consistent growth.

The national brand of K-State Athletics is growing and the Ahearn Fund continues to guide significant resources to expand this connection so that more can join in this shared vision of success. This level of annual commitment from NLC members helps to fund student-athlete scholarships, increase academic support, enhance sports medicine practices, recruit and retain student-athletes and coaches from all over the world and provide direct funds for capital improvements to the K-State Athletics complex.
