Major Gifts and Capital Projects

Kent State Athletics is aggressively engaged in fund-raising for some much needed capital projects, which include the Schoonover Baseball Stadium, the Ferrara and Page Golf Teaching and Learning Facility and a Track and Soccer Complex. These new and renovated venues will enhance the quality of experiences for Kent State student-athletes.

Kent State Athletics is at a critical juncture in a history that dates back more than a century. As we strive to bridge the gap from our past achievements, the Building Champions Initiative will serve as the impetus for our future triumphs. Your support of this comprehensive plan is crucial to the continued success of the Golden Flashes.

 

For more information on major gifts and capital projects contact Matthew Geis, Senior Associate Athletic Director, Executive Director Athletic Advancement at (330) 672-2093.
