Ways to Give




Any gift to Kent State Athletics earns you a place in The Golden Flashes Club. A gift of $100 or more makes you a “member” and eligible to receive benefits.

There are multiple giving programs available from which to choose.

Annual Giving- The Golden Flashes Club

The annual cash gifts we receive from thousands of supporters each year allows us to directly support student-athlete scholarship expenses and summer school tuition. Donors who make annual gifts may also designate their gift to the sport of their choice for needed expenses. A gift of any size is beneficial. A gift of $100 or more makes you a “member” and eligible to receive benefits through The Golden Flashes Club.

With a goal of doubling our annual giving income, we plan to assist coaches by providing them with supplements to their budget for special expenses they deem important to help improve their programs.

Other Giving Opportunities

Other giving opportunities include scholarships, real estate, planned giving, life insurance policies, stocks or securities. Our trained staff can help you determine what type of gift is right for you.

"During my time at Kent State I've learned that I can be as successful as I want to be. With hard work, I believe anything is possible. I also feel like I've also become more patient and well-rounded because of the influence of the people around me. And I know I wouldn't be where I am today in the classroom without the tremendous support we receive academically."
