3) Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities are becoming a popular way of making a substantial contribution to the K Fund.

K Fund members can help ensure that the tradition of UK Athletics continues in perpetuity by making a planned gift. Deferred gifts, wills, bequests, and trusts are other ways members can assist in providing the K Fund financial resources for continued growth. Planned gifts may provide income/capital gains tax savings and possible estate tax savings.
6) Join the BIG BLUE INITIATIVE
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.
Example: You contributed $1,000 for the 2012-13 athletic season. Therefore, 15% of the total 2012-13 donation would equal a minimum donation of $150 to join the Big Blue initiative and earn five (5) additional priority points.
7) Refer a Friend to the K Fund
Help us strengthen the foundation of the K Fund and increase the number of those who contribute to UK Athletics by referring a new member to the K Fund. Receive (3) priority points for every $10,000 donation referred by you to the K Fund.
8) Show Your Support in the Stands
For all of UK Athletics 22 Varsity Sports, a home-field advantage is a key component to success. Your support from the stands fuels our student-athletes in competition. We encourage you to join us on game days throughout the year as we cheer on our Wildcats.
