Fire Rising K Club Challenge

This campaign ended on May 15, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Knox College by clicking here!

The arrival of new Director of Athletics Daniella Irle brings new momentum to Knox Athletics. With men’s and women’s soccer, football, volleyball, women’s basketball, softball and track, all having their best seasons in years, the sparks of a bigger fire are rising for the Prairie Fire!

In recognition of the successes of our student-athletes and coaches, and to welcome Daniella Irle to Knox, the K Club has set a 20-day giving challenge (Knox has 20 NCAA Division III varsity teams) to raise $100,000.

If Knox Prairie Fire fans, alumni and parents give $50,000 or more to the K Club over the next 20 days, 12 Knox letterwinners have pledged to match these gifts with $50,000 for a total of $100,000 raised between April 25 and May 14.

With the support of alumni, family, and friends, K Club creates unforgettable experiences for student-athletes by supporting the hire of full-time coaches, improvements to Prairie Fire facilities, and student-athlete recruitment efforts.

The Fire is rising for Prairie Fire athletics. We want you to be a part of it!

Support the K Club today!
