Ahearn Fund Giving Reaches New Pinnacle

There's also been an unofficial campaign under way at, if you're interested in learning more. Despite the thousands of alumni K-State has produced, only 6,000 or so are members of the Ahearn Fund — even though you can become a full member for as little as $5 a month. I myself recently got off the fence and finally joined, although I'd prefer not to disclose the amount of my rather meager donation. If you want to make sure Frank Martin gets that new practice facility he so desperately needs, or you're tired of the lack of bathrooms in the upper level of Bill Snyder Family Stadium, now would be a great time to put your money where your mouth is.
