Annual Fund

A component of the Pitt State Athletic Fund

The Annual Fund component of the Pitt State Athletic Fund generates financial support for all Pittsburg State University student-athletes with a responsibility to facilitate, promote, and enhance academic and athletic experiences. 

The Annual Fund includes three components:

What is Annual Fund?

As part of the Pitt State Athletic Fund, the Annual Fund is the primary source of private financial support for athletic programs at Pittsburg State each year. Each contribution helps provide necessary resources to recruit quality student-athletes in order to maintain the high level of excellence expected in all 12 sports. Annual Fund gifts are used for student scholarships and annual operating expenses.

Private Contributions are Vital

No tax dollars are spent on intercollegiate athletics scholarships in the state of Kansas. Therefore, private funding is crucial in maintaining the level of success that Pittsburg State’s athletics programs have enjoyed over the years. The private contributions are vital in preparing Pittsburg State's young men and women to win in the classroom and on the field of competition.
