Answer the call to the Big Blue Nation! Go beyond your total annual giving by increasing your gift by 15 percent.  K Fund members who contribute an additional 15 percent above their current donations for the year will earn five (5) priority points in addition to the normal three (3) points per $100. By joining this initiative, you will help make an immediate impact in moving UK Athletics, and the Big Blue Nation, forward.  If you are interested in joining, please contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300 or KFund@uky.edu to learn what your minimum contribution will be to join.
